Hello from the south west of England
on: September 02, 2020, 06:42:06 PM
I'm returning to biking after many years without a bike.  I was looking for a mid sized comfortable bike and the 500X fitted the bill.

I've been lurking on this site for quite a while picking up various bits of information and learning lots from you guys and girls - much appreciated.  Comparing accessories from different manufacturers and reading the pros and cons really helps with decision making, especially in the current climate when getting to dealers and shops is not so easy; photos especially are extremely useful.

I've treated myself to a 2020 model which I'm in the process of running in.

Regards
Philip

Bike is off the road at the mo - Brake light is on all the time and it's unlikely I'll have time to sort it before Sat.
Enjoy the views and keep me posted for future rides
