    Might just take a bit more getting used to perhaps????

    Did you tell how much you weigh? This must have some bearing on how much the foam with compress and the gel the squash, and like Rushwind said, if the weight to depth of foam / gel ratio is incorrect then it will all just squash and leave you sat on the plastic underneath in essence.

    For tools DEFINITELY get the Halfords 150 piece set in the sale (down to £100 from £200). Its got pretty much most of the kit in it you will need, and is good quality with a lifetime warranty too. Then just buy other tools as you need them along the way.

    Halfords professional tool chest / cabinets are also good value too if in the sale :thumbsu:

    John, I appreciate you are trying to sell him a bike and I really don't care what he does or know what his budget is. I was just showing him an example of what is out there. Good luck with whatever you decide on.


    I wasn't saying it because of that Steve. Was just meaning that if you are wanting to learn a bit of spannering, while it is all well just buying something REALLY cheap just in case you break it, when it is in that condition you will not learn too much about spannering but just how to remove rusted / broken bolts, and how to buy replacement parts. Then when you cant get it running you will get frustrated and end up either just selling it or taking it to a mechanic to fix which then defeats the object.

    I was in the same position as you a few years ago and wanted to learn more about the mechanicals so did exactly what you are doing now. I have bought decent bikes to play with and also complete wreckers, and from my experience, when you have little knowledge to start with, the best thing to do is strip and rebuild a bike that you know was mechanically sound before you stripped it. You get your experience levels up but more importantly your confidence levels up. Then sell it on and buy another and do it all over again on a different bike.
