I'm jens, I've been cycloholic for... well, the bike has been a toy and means of transportation since I was a kid. Now I bike to work (do 2 miles count as a "commute"?) and go occasionaly riding trails in the evening. My bike is old and is starting to give me some trouble, so I started searching the internet (I'm a mechanical idiot myself) and found this great forum, thanks guys. I've read a ton of threads here already and hope I will get some help and be able to share my limited experience with others.
