Hello to all you beginners who are reading the forum and itching to post your first post!! I'd just like to say that no question is too stupid - we all have to start somewhere, and it you don't ask you don't find out - so get posting!! Once you've started you'll find it can be rather addictive - especially when you get cracking advice from the helpful experienced cyclists that pop into Beginners to help out. So come on, what are you waiting for, let's have those questions ... Cheers, Shaun PS. Don't tell anyone, but I'm still a bit of a beginner myself!!
