    Hello from Toronto!

    I just got a new bike for the first time in my adult life. I have discovered how fun, liberating, enjoyable, relaxing, strenuous, and adventurous cycling can be.

    I ride a Norco XFR three on city roads, trails, and paths almost daily. I am interested on learning about how bikes work so I can get to know my bike better and one day be able to maintain and repair it.

    I'm looking forward to learning and sharing on these forums.

    I have a rough idea on how to use a patch kit to get me home/to the LBS.

    Patch kit is for the tube not the tire, just a heads up .
    If you already know good for you, I was just making sure.

    The only thing you will ever regret, are the risks you didn't take.

    welcome!

    check out bike pirates on bloor, just east of dufferin. volunteer/charity run shop.

    take your bike in with any problems, tuning issues, upgrades, etc + they have all the tools/used parts you'll ever need to fix/upgrade your bicycle.

    the amazing thing about the shop is that the volunteers will tell you exactly how to fix/upgrade your bike, while making you do it yourself. this is how i learned the basic/intermediate skills of bike maintenance. very laid back, easy going environment.

    check out bike pirates here

    glad you are so excited about biking!
