    Hello and yes, I'm new.

    I've been reading some of the posts and learning a lot and getting back into biking. I have 2 mountain bikes....an old Specialized Rock Hopper, and a new Trek 4500 WSD. I also have a Giant OCR3 road bike that I love because my big buddy bought it for me. I'm going to go read more because I don't know what else to say at the moment. Thank you.

    Hello Japat--isn't it nice to have a big buddy? This probably means you don't need much of an introduction, but just enjoy the reading (and riding!).

    Welcome to BF!

    Easy enough to do--just visit the Forum Suggestions waaaaay down at the bottom of the main page--there must be a hundred threads on 'how to post a photo'

    I don't think most of us have that much time--not if we want to ride bikes every once in a while .

    Gotta align the cranks just so, get the stem valves hidden, show off drivetrain, lugs...

    Not to mention wash the bikes, take pictures to post in the body here, read a lot, ride a lot, wash the bikes again...........problem is......it's so hot right now everything has to be done bright and early in the morning or when the sun goes down. Oh, and wash bike clothes.
