I'm a 19 year old cyclist living in Toronto. I'm new to the world of a cycling hobbyist and am currently riding a '78 Raleigh Grand Prix that i've done some upgrading on but am hoping to purchase a higher quality, older, italian road frame that I can build up. I bike to and from work and all across the city but cycle as a means of transportation and recreation rather than interesting myself in racing. I am interested in learning about building, repairing and maintaining bikes, as well as the history of bicycles and their manufactures. I have been searching these forums for information without having registered for quite some time and am looking forward to continue learning and sharing with others in the cycling community.
