Hi! I'm new.

Hi everybody! I'm new here. I've been on the other forums, but I've decided to let another Forum into my life.

Anyhow, I like biking a lot. So, hopefully I can contribute to your threads. Maybe you will get mad at me in the future because we have disagreeing positions about Nokon cables or something. Don't worry, I won't be offended.

OK, so help us to get to know you a little better. What's your bike frame made out of? Campy or Shimano? What kind of chain lube do you use? Do you like disc brakes?

Yeah, so I'm a mountain biker/roadie. I have a Dean singlespeed that I ride alot, and a full suspension KHS. On the road I ride a KHS with Campy.

I love steel. But it's getting harder and harded to come by, so I guess I like aluminum now. Not a huge fan of Carbon, but to each his own I guess. I love disc brakes, can't get enough of them! And for chain lube I swear by the Finish Line wax lube.

well you're no fun

edit your post to look like this:

I'm a die hard roadie and think every other type of biker is stoopid!
I spent a bajillion dollars on my 2lb road bike that vanishes in the wind tunnel, it is made of adamentium and has super duper components.
I think that Crisco is the best chain lube (the solid lard type, not the liquid crap) and disc brakes are pointless unless you are fat and too dumb to tune your cantis.

Then we can talk...

Be sure to mix up "your" and "you're".

Otherwise, welcome to the forum!

Welcome. Here in the General Discussion forum room things are pretty laid back & not really controversial. If you want controversy & debate in regards to cycling just step into the Advocacy & Safety forum room. If you want it not related to cycling visit the Politics & Religion forum room. Again welcome.
