mechanic in the house

Hello guys. Im from chicago area and have been a mechanic for a few years.I got my start at Galyans building and repairing bikes and pretty much got tought a lot from peers.I knew bmx but not mountain much.Now four years later after workimg in other area shops i have fallen in love with riding.

I am about to get my bike hooked up this spring cause it sucks now,04fisher wahoo, im uprading pretty much everything and repainting the frame to make it trully custom.Working at shops is great cause you get the awesome discount and order straight from the distributor, thats why im fixin up my bike cause its fun to build yourself and inexpensive for parts.

Ill post pics when i start the project.Hope to use this forum often and i hope i can help any way i can.

2.Am i automatically a member,or is there a trial period
3.How do i get a thumb picture for my profile to go w/ my name?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yeah I was gonna rebuild it before I posted pics, but I sold it instead. I wanted to get a new frame and start from scratch, my bike rode well but I want full suspension,prob like a Trek Fuel frame and go from there.It will be a month or so before I even get a frame though,oh well, Ill have to wait.........
Here is thread pertaining to my bike sale:
Good price for my ride?
Ill post pics as soon as I get started on new project,I cant wait


Here is a pic of my real ride for now:

You have to buy everyone in The Aussie Thread a beer first, then you're a member.
