    Woohoo! Hello!

    Hi. As of about a year and half ago I hadn't ridden a bike since I was a kid. Getting a new bike was really overwhelming and I didn't know what I needed. I ended up getting a mountain bike because riding a road bike just felt weird and I was afraid of breaking it. Unfortunately, it wasn't the bike I needed, however, I did complete my first triathlon on it. A year ago I moved to Nashville, sold my mountain bike, test rode about 20 different used bikes I found on Craigslist, and settled on a 1977 Sekai with Suntour components and I am in love. Since then I have learned how to repack the bottom bracket and do general maintenance and upkeep. I am learning as much as I can about bikes in general. I have been reading the BikeForums for a while now and have gotten so much help by reading other peoples threads that I decided it is time I joined and own the fact that this bike obsession is a real part of my life now. I am looking forward to being a part of this community!

    Hi Beaker, welcome to BF, you should visit the Mechanics Forum and the Classic and Vintage Forum, these will have the topics you are interested in. the regional forums are a good place to find others near you for riding and other activities.
