Hi from Philly

Hi there. Been lurking around here a few days, figured I might as well sign up. I'm pretty new to riding, only been at it regularly about 5 months now, but it's gotten to the point where I'm completely obsessed - that Queen song definitely applies. Simply put, I love my city and I love riding it. I ride to and from work every day and anywhere else I can. I'm often finding excuses to go places just for the ride. Right now I have a beat up '85 Schwinn Sprint that I've converted to single speed and swapped out various other parts on (stem, bars, saddle, new wheels). I love building and tinkering with things, and I'm really excited about learning all the ins and outs. Currently saving up to start building up a track bike, hoping to find a frame I like at a swap meet this weekend. Currently don't have a ton of bike friends, but I'm sure that'll change. See ya's around the site.

Cheers,
Ben

Welcome from a former Bucks County resident. In fact, I was just there 31 years ago.
