This site looks great, very interesting and informative.
Personally, I've been hooked on cycling since I got a mt. bike for my high school graduation present in '90 (after several "kiddy" bikes). I have done several tours all over this great country and have competed in a few dozen races sporadically over the years.
I want to welcome you to Bicycle Forums.
Yes, it is interesting and informative.
I am sure you will share with us some of your experiences
with bicycling, racing and also share your (mechanics)knowledge.
Have fun and enjoy the forums; again a warm welcome to you.
