Hi to all members. I am returning to cycling after some 15 years, for no real reason other than wanting to get out of the car for shorter trips, I don't get to use my motorcycle as its reluctantly resides as a garage queen, an occasional commuting option and and extra leisure activity as my knees no longer like running. I got myself a second hand TREK Alpha 2.3 with all the bells whistles that should not leave me wanting upgrades overnight. Its all Shimano 105 group set, cateye lights, on board pump, Fizik Aliante seat, cages and a tool bag filled with spare tubes, canisters. It came complete with the original purchase invoice and owners pack. Just in the process of giving it a quick de-grease, wash and lube. Gears, brakes, cables all seem healthy and precise. I'd like to fit fresh inner tubes and a set of Conti Gator Skin tyres for peace of mind. With the poor standards of motorists towards cyclists these days, I am a little nervous but, will venture out for 30 mins or so at a time on early Saturday/Sunday mornings to start getting into it when the roads are a quieter and drivers a little more relaxed. Anyway, I look forward to contributing across the forum.
