Hi from Ruakaka, New Zealand

I'm a 60 year old male with a keen interest in cycling since I was a kid. Having recently moved house half way up a large hill, I faced the fact that cycling was just getting too difficult, and age wasn't helping. That was before taking the plunge and converting over my trusty Specialized Hardrock with a Bafang BBS02 kit. Now I don't see hills and wind as obstacles so much and I can get back to enjoying my bike like I used to. I live high up on a rural gravel road but down below are flat roads and a beach that stretches for miles. I intend to make that all part of my weekend playground and keep myself fit whilst doing so.
I look forward to doing a bit of tinkering with my setup and hope to get some good advice a long the way. I hope to help out others similarly when I can. Thanks for having me!
