This page chronicles the enabling journey of cyclists on Bikeszone, to help folks realize the value of investing in quality cycling gear, and remind them to "never say never", and why they should "buy the best they can almost not afford". If you like cycling, you will get into it and spend ever larger sums - better to start from a better point. A GOOD cycle (lightweight, quality components) can make the difference between a rust bucket wasting away in the balcony and a cycle you ride every single day.
