I'm so glad you were here. I am a keen cyclist and was interested in this, but then read your comment and suddenly realised how silly I was to consider such a bike and I have now seen the light. I went straight to Sports Direct and bought one of their excellent £99 bikes and am absolutely delighted with it...or at least, I will be once I get it shifting gears smoothly and sort the buckled wheels from my first ride out on it. I am eternally grateful to you. Can HUKD not offer you some sort of "forum policeman" avatar that you can use?
Can we do the "no pedals" and "the price of my first car " comments now to get them out the way ? If you want to be a competitive cyclist then this might be your thing. For the other 99.9,% you are spending money for the sake of it.
