Hi Wes!

Start off slow over in the SS/FG forum--they don't mind answering questions if you look as if you've tried to find the answer, but they are a surly lot if they suspect you haven't done the homework .

Welcome to BF!

Welcome- you'll learn lots here. Search for "Pista" threads and check out fixedgeargallery.com for upgrading ideas.
