Either for fitness, leisure or both?
Ive just picked myself up a new avanti 29.2 mountain bike, still entry level but it is a great bike with excellent components and is a pleasure to ride.
Have spent a few hours a day on it since i picked it up and i dont beleive how much fitter i feel already.
this + helmet and a few little things.
Getting myself a whole heap of gear at the end of the week... these things are addictive!
Would def be keen to find a few people to ride with.
I live in Brisbane, pretty much 3km from the cbd and ride about 15km every afternoon/night.
