bac, that was one of the reasons I joined.
Thanks. I liked the threads on that board.
my trainer bike is an old Supergo mtb frame with old parts.
Road bike is a stock Giant TCR3, my first road bike. I was going to go for an OCR, but couldn't believe I could feel an acceleration difference between the two, plus the price difference was marginal.
Mtn. Bike is a K2 Razorback I got back in 2002 (I think). Love it, even with its oddities, but am seriously considering going to a Salsa Mamasita.
I tend to road ride more now due to convenience, but have mtn biked since late 90's.
As far as framebuilding, I would probably go to a local night school to learn welding first, then play with old bikes and move up from there. We'll see, so far its a pipedream, but its an idea as part of some cash on the side.
