ive been riding road for 4 years, recently built up a de rosa 10spd. with my 2 hands with a friends help. i like tools, grease, learning new stuff. im taking a wheel building class this summer so i can get my new mondia up on (his?) feet. im anthropomorphic about my bikes. its totally possible that im nuts, but i dont care. i have no interest in racing, but i love going to the marymoore velodrome on friday nights. i want to ride out to redmond 30 miles tonight, we'll see if i can find a friend to join me. no takers yet. anyway. i joined because im always googling bike parts and i end up here reading y'alls advice..so now im here for real and can join in the fun, YAY.
