    Hello

    Hello everybody,

    I've never been too serious of a rider, just some occasional trails (though some of them pretty hard-core) and commuting. I would like to change that though.

    I moved to Athens, Georgia from the Detroit, Michigan area almost three years ago (came here for graduate school). I didn't know anyone that rode down here until recently. We made plans to go ride some trails and in preparation for that I discovered several cracks in my head tube :confused: You can read my tirade and see a couple of pics in my post on the MTB forum.

    They're jacking parking on campus up several hundred percent next year, so I have enough incentive to replace my frame. I'd like to get my hands on a quality steel hardtail and this is my current project.

    I have several years experience in bicycle shops. I'm a decent mechanic but never got serious into high end/ custom stuff. I'm sure I'll have some questions about my impending frame replacement and I'm glad I found this forum so I can get some advice.

    I'm looking forward to getting back on the trails and being part of this community.

    Cheers!
    MIjoe

    Welcome to the BikeForums. :thumbup:

    There are a few Georgia members (Athens and Atlanta ) here, and lots of folks to answer your questions.
    Good luck with the rebuilding project.
