Im a complete noob to the bike scene. I lost my licence, and since I started biking I really don't want my licence back. If it weren't for MN winters, I would sell my jeep..
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and wondering if anyone knows of a good "do it yourself" site for maintaining your bike. I do body work full time, and i figure if i can work on saab's, I can work on bikes.

Hi welcome to Bikeforums.
A couple of popular sites for maintenance tips are parktool.com and sheldonbrown.com
If you have any questions, depending on the age of your bike, searching and asking in the Mechanics forum will get you answers... If it is an older bike, sometimes asking in the Classic & Vintage forum is useful as well.
