hello

hi stumbled across this forum in my travels, have rode bikes all my life for transport and fun, love to ride especially at night, and I think bicycles have a role to play in the future of our planet. Am really wanting to do some long distance unsupported touring, gearing up for it now. and want to ditch my car completely! (have done in the past just hard with kids). I can see there is alot of information here, am looking forward to sifting through. If anyone has a link to a post about shock rebuilding, would be a good place to start. so hi to all

edit-[ Sorry forgot to mention im from Australia]

Welcome to the forum.

There are other Australians hanging out here, and some tourers down in the Touring forum waiting to share or receive information from another tourer.

Great to have you join us!

Hello rustguard, fellow member Rowan is also in Australia, and has a lot of experience with touring.

Can't help you with the shock rebuilding, but ask in the Bicycle Mechanics forum.

Welcome to BF!
