not been on here for donkeys (sorry) and after finally getting the all clear after my ankle 'fubar' I am able to re-join the realms of cycling. To start I will be needing a bike for sure, still got the old MTB but want to start getting back on the road. It's been a long time and a hard road to get my confidence in pedals after the 'bump' which if any of you can remember put my right foot facing backwards (balk) but the strength is coming back - unfortunately the fitness has gone back several years........
So, looking for a half decent road bike or a good hybrid to get me started and to regain the fitness, road sense and strength, especially after tearing just about every tendon and breaking several bones in my ankle/foot. Around 54cm and happy with alu.
Has anyone got anything (without the heartache of eBay, Gumtree or Friday ad's nutters?) At the moment up to about £700 (yep, I know my muti-grand bikes have gone) so has the age increased too.
Let me know - no doubt I shall be haunting these hollowed pages going forward.
