    Greetings!

    So, I recently rediscovered my love for biking, and that's what brought me here.
    I know I need pictures, but I'll add them, I promise.
    I rode trails as a kid, and went to BMX around age 20. I dropped off of BMX after about a year, because I enlisted in the Marine Corps, and didn't really have time for it.
    My favourite bike was a 2005 Diamondback Joker that I absolutely adored. (I wrecked it out pretty badly, and wound up scrapping it, because I couldn't dedicate the time to put it back together, and couldn't keep it, due to space constraints...)
    So, what brought me here:
    I was looking to find a bike to work on, and really, the more thrashed, the more fun it would be. I enjoy fixing broken things, and I found a pretty broken, traffic-cone-orange, 18-speed Huffy. The frame was straight, but that was about it. I felt bad for the poor thing, and so I took it home. I replaced the warped front wheel, and since I've been pretty busy, my brother swapped the derailleur for me. It's heavy, it's neon, but it's a hell of a lot of fun. I don't particularly need anything sophisticated to enjoy riding. I just enjoy the experience. Plus, if something horrific happens to it, it's not a huge investment lost.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to riding a lot more, and to being on this forum!

    Yeah, I've been procrastinating on getting pictures of it. I'm going out riding tomorrow, and I'll take some pictures then.
