Hello everyone Hope you can help. I have decided to take up cycling for the good of my health! It seems a good way to get fit and I cant stand the thought of excercising whilst facing a wall or a room of sweaty persons. Plus we have some lovely countryside around where we live that would be great to explore. Im asking questions first here from people who actually use and love their bikes (rather than asking the bloke in the bike shop who wants my money!!) So a few questions I have are...... I have been looking online and think that I will be needing with a hybrid bike (roads, lanes and tracks - not mountains!!) - any suggestions on a good one for a beginner £200-300.00 How do I know what frame size I need? What is an open frame and why is it good? Whats a triple? Any other 'Kit' Or suggested bits I would need for my bike Any suggestions for comfy/well fitting helmets? I know I sound completely clueless - well I am so far!!! I know the lanes as far as I can walk in the time I have, but no I want more... Cheers Sal.
