I thought it may be a good idea to see which bike set-ups members have...

I have an '08 Specialized Rockhopper Disc - I added CB Eggbeaters (SL's) and a few scratches due to taking a crash course in how to fly a bike! :-)

Other than that it's standard at the moment...

I'm really impessed with the bike tho - very light compared to bikes I'm used to, I've never had hydraulic disc brakes before either - take a bit of getting used to... over the bars a few times at first.

I'm 60 years old, new to cycling and this site.

In October I bought a used Inspired Cycle Engineering (ICE)Sprint, it's a recumbent tadpole trike.

The two front brakes are Avid BB7 discs, with a Avid V brake on the rear as a parking brake. 20 inch wheels currently with Schwalbe Citizen tyres. Rear suspension.

It comes as standard fit with SRAM X5 9 speed grip shifts, which I may change to bar ends shortly. and a ICE custom Capreo 9-32 speed cassette. The gear range is 15.7"-103.5" (1.255m -8.28m), whatever that means.

Just clocked up my first 500 miles since buying it on the 18th Oct. Yay !

I'm 62 and bought my first new bike 2 yrs ago, Raleigh Royal tourer, love it. Best thing I've ever done. Had to give up plumbing after 47 years coz my knees are knackered but I can still cycle, in fact cycling is helping me repair my knees, I think!

I got a very minimal and cheap set-up but i still get a good speed of around 30-35 mph on the flats down grimsby road with no wind. I have an apollo radar, 14 kg in weight, 18 speed shimano TZ gears (3 on the front and 6 on the back). It has a front disk brake and a back V-brake. I run on 26x2.10 tyres. Even though it's a pretty cheap bike at £150. It still has got me to Barton 5 times in just under 1 hour. I prefer to long distance cycling and the furthest i have done is 82 mile ride through scunthorpe.

Hi everyone here'
I have got a lovely Silver Dawes Kingpin *fold up bike* - with lots of little add ons involving pink and purple - I had been under my staircase for about 6 years until recently and I look forward to using it several times a week now [ since about June 2018 ]
