Thought I'd introduce myself to the forum.
I started off on mountain bikes and rode extensively during my teenage years. No serious tracks or downhills, but I do recall being on my bike a lot - it's what got me back and forth from my first job!
Took a long break, and now find myself getting very interested in road bikes, particularly of the fixed gear and single speed varieties. I'm hopefully going to be doing a restore job in the very near future and I'm sure these forums will provide to be a great source of information and wisdom.
