Hello from Long Beach, CA

Hello everyone,

I have been casually browsing for a bike for some time now, and have finally decided to get after it.

My main goal is to be able to enjoy the great Southern California weather and hopefully get in shape while doing it.

This place sure does seem like a great resource of knowledge so I am really looking forward to learning and hopefully down the road, contributing as well.

-Chris

Howdy Chris,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Your best bet is to visit All the bike shops in your area.

Buy from the friendly shop.
They will be a great help for minor problems and questions, as well as warranty repairs if you need them.

I am looking in to building a Pake single speed.

There is certainly a lot of information to know, and it does make it difficult being that there are some threads with 1,000+ posts. Haha.

I suppose I just shouldn't be afraid to ask, so long as I can keep it to one thread.

Thanks for the welcome!
