Pwag from Walla Walla Washington

Hello, I am not a cyclist!

I love bikes, such simple elegant machines. I've had an old 60'ish Schwinn for years that I fell in love with when I was a kid. It had been sitting for years in the garage of a rented house I lived in as a child. I was so excited when the landlord said I could have it!

I have kids now and they are getting to bicycle age and I can't fathom spending big money on something we can build together. So I'm slowly learning, and buying frames to set them up.

I recently purchased a 74 super beetle and now my 6 year old son wants a chopper rat bike to match.

Good to meet you all, I look forward to harassing you guys relentlessly with my questions and theories.

Well, I'm not exactly in Walla Walla I am in one of the satelite towns that skirts it.

Growing up, however, a bike was all I had to get me, my camping gear and my fishing gear from my place to Touchet River to fish/camp.

Ran the heck outta several mass market bikes that way!
