    Holla... from Asheville NC...

    I'm living right next to a greenway here in Asheville NC. I had not ridden a Bicycle in almost 8 years! So I sold my car and am riding a used surly 1x1 that is a mis-mash of parts. My goal is to take some welding classes and a bicycle frame/fork building class and design and build my dream bicycle(or bicycles). It will be a mix of bmx/track/mtb/ commuter.. It will be a full on mutt.
    I logged in many a mile in the bush of Africa, and here in the south east. I stopped riding because, ww kayaking, marriage, kids, job....oh boo hoo...blah blah blahhhh... I a moving on from the excuse stage, I am still married, still a father, don't kayak anymore and have a job but am heading back to school. Yes yes who the hell is this guy tell his life story??

    I am Livermush
