Hello folks, this is my first post!! I have just started cycling again after being very keen in my teens. I desperately need to lose weight and so I have built this as my motivation (I daren't ride her until I'm lighter in case she breaks ). She took about 1 day to screw together in the end but I'm not happy with the bar tape so I will be doing that again Sorry about the pic quality, I took them at about 9PM after I'd finished her. In order to get to a decent weight I'm riding 25 miles per day, commuting to work on this: It's very hard work! I started about a month ago and it was taking me 1h25m to ride in (12 - 13 miles). Now, after some route optimisation and genuine fitness improvements I'm doing it in around 54 minutes. Home takes a bit longer because it's uphill(ish) to Beckenham from central London Not lost much weight yet, but I think that's because of muscle mass and the fact that I am hydrating much better now than I ever did! Never used to really drink during the day so was probably really dehydrated. I'm expecting the weight to start to shift soon though.
