After a long period of low update rates, I finally got some time to put on this web site. This sounded like the perfect time to introduce an all new and enhanced web site as the summer is coming for many of our readers. This new site will provide improved functionalities like discussion forums so that you can ask your questions or help others making the best use of the bicycle season.

As the summer is coming for many of us, the web traffic for this site is rapidly increasing and I am definitely pleased of that situation. Nevertheless, section 4 of the "After you buy" topic still has to be done. I hope to remedy to that situation soon as the topics it addresses will most probably be of great use as many bicycle enthusiast start to ride everywhere on the planet. I wish I had more spare time to do more on this web site as it is a great locomotion method (the best from some studies) ... and fun as well!

Stay tuned.

It has been a long time since my last update on this site and I apologise for this situation. There is still a lot to do and I hope to find some (rare) spare time eventually to complete the missing sections and add what I had promised below. I will add to my existing to do list to add a section about safety. It may sound a boring topic to many ;-), but it is nonetheless a topic sometimes overlooked which can transform a pleasant biking day into a fatal one.

All the best to you all for this year 2006 and ride safe.
