Howdy all,

I've gleaned some interesting info from google search results coming to the various forums and thought I'd sign up.

I'm in Melbourne Australia, and ride a trusty old 1995 (or so) Norco Nitro. I keep it running for sentimental, not financial reasons: the only original parts remaining are the frame and the LX v-brake arms, and maybe the front derailleur. Currently shod with slicks and serving my daily rather short commute to the middle of town, and basically all my transport around town, as I'm car-less.

Thanks to all forum participants for the interesting discussions,
