My name is Bob, I'm from Sydney, Australia. I never learned how to ride a bike when I was a kid. When I was 18, I decided I wanted to learn, so I got my friend's BMX, pumped the wheels, taught myself how to ride for about half an hour, and rode 4km to a different friends house. Terrible idea! I crashed. Several times.
I got my first bike not long after that which was a Giant Boulder 1. I love my bike but since going to USYD and seeing road bikes every day I finally decided to buy an old road bike for $50. I have no idea what it is/how old it is/if its any good atm but I'm planning to take it apart, figure out how everything works, clean it up and then possibly pimp it up for the funs.
But I dont know anything about bikes, so hopefully you can all teach me a thing or two.
