    Is this the place to say hello and offer virtual drinks and cake?

    If it's not could this be moved to the correct place.

    Thank you

    There is a beginners section which could be used for saying hello, but nothing here is regimented so saying it in Cake is fine. Welcome to the forum and I hope you'll enjoy some time and fun with us in the future. In the mean time you could also inform us what bike(s) you like riding etc.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well hello,

    I'm a londoner who has collected several bikes, a Rockhopper that my girlfriend gave me. Needs a new bottom bracket and probably a new set of chain rings. This is to be my proper mountain bike that my other half are supposed to go mountain biking with, but due to her hip injuries we can't ride together.

    A ridgeback Java hybrid that needs a seat post and a few repairs and servicing.

    I also have a a Peugeot iseran that I rebuilt with really nice ultegra bits and before I noticed the frame is too big for me. Doh.

    The bits from a Trek navigator hybrid that had a bent frame and an old ridgeback frame to build it in to.

    So I'm a bit of a bike tinkerer really.

    Oh I also ride a motorbike and I'm looking to commute more by bike as its a healthy option.

    Hello Lynx and welcome. This is a good place to start even if you have nothing to do with bikes but there is the rest of the site for that.

    Welcome.

    Sounds like you various bikes need a lot of repair or adjustment. Are any of them actually rideable at the moment?

    The Iseran is rideable. I've been riding it occasionally, to work. But I enjoy projects. In cars and bikes, when they are fixed I usually move on to the next project.:biggrin:
