Hello I've been browsing the forum for many years and finally taken the plunge. I haven't been able to ride my unassisted bikes for about 5 years now. So today I went out tried a few bikes and my wife bought me one for my birthday. What a revelation I've ridden 8 miles which may not seem far to many but to me it's amazing. I'm sure I'll be lurking for many more years. Thanks for all the information gleaned at others expense.
