Hello from Surrey, UK

Hey, my names David and I've been visiting this site for ages for all kinds of information and advice and I have finally got around to becoming a member today! I ride a rigid hybrid GT as my commuter bike, I am interested in peoples Chinese carbon bicycle builds, and also some of the topics on multiple brake lever systems. I also happen to be working on both of these; I have some carbon frames from Hongfu and Archteks on order, and I am working on building a hydraulic 2 lever 1 caliper brake system. But I'll save those for the relevant forum. Cheers, I look forward to some interesting discussions.

Welcome to BF, Cycletorque, good to have another UK rider here. Glad you decided to join up and post. You should look into the Mechanics forum for the interesting builds and the components they have built and the tips they have, if you haven't already. We have a neat frame builders forum too, should that interest you.

Hey, thanks for the welcome, I'll be sure to check out those sections. I'm going to get my drill now and my box of parts and continue on my hydraulic brake box thingy.
