This is me signing in...
I have always ridden: bikes, trikes, motor bikes, monkey-bikes, unicycles pretty much anything with wheels.
I am really keen to get my hands on an 'Ordinary' but it seem it is quite hard to acquire one there (unless you have allot of money).
It had been a long time since I had been on a bike and I found I was really craving it, so I got it out of the shed and started getting fit.
A little while ago my bike decided to brake beyond repair. I tried to have it fixed, but it turned out to be a manufacturing fault. So there's me with no bike and no money to buy a new one.
I was walking around the back yard one day and I found my dads old racing/road-bike in a pile of junk. I had always wanted one like that and in fact when I was younger I had one. It was far to big for me but I was determined to ride it. Now I'm thinking it was probably for the best it was stolen, I continuously crashed and fell off as the brakes hardly worked and I couldn't touch the ground by a long shot haha..
Anyway I fell in love with the idea of bringing this long forgotten bike back to its former glory and hopefully even better!
I get to work cleaning and striping it back when I realised I know nearly nothing about bike mechanically and sizing etc. so here I am!
