hey my name is thom. i really dont know much about bikes other than i cant seem to ride enough. i dont know much about mechanics so i hope to learn as much as possible. i dont really feel the need to have the most exspnsive bike. if you told me it was a useless piece i would believe you, if you said it was made of diamonds i would believe you. but id ride it anyway. i ride a jamis quest. bought off a friend. right now im having chain noise issues. i think the derailleur is rubbing somewhere. again, hi.
