    howdy from Texas!!

    hehe. I really never say Howdy. i just thought it would be funny to be stereotypical. my name is april. i have been riding a bike daily for over a year now. i sold back my car about 5 months after having a bike and i dont know why i did not do it sooner. i joined because i dont know a whole bunch about putting a bike together (which will not be the case for very long, the bike cave of texas state university is conducting a class to teach how to build a bike). my last bike was recently stolen :'( and i learned many things about prevention and recovery of a stolen bike. i do have a new bike. not quite in running condition. the tires look like they have been the sun for entirely too long. i just really want to learn as much about bikes as i can... best place to start i think.

    Hello april, welcome to Bike Forums!

    Bike thieves are the scum of the earth. The class on bike mechanics sounds like a great idea, I wish we had those around here when I started commuting in the previous millenium. I could have used a kick-start in bike fixing. The first time I had a flat, I took it to the shop. Pretty soon realised I'm not going to get much commuting done unless I start to do the simple mechanical maintenance stuff myself.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
