I am new to the forum, and would like to introduce myself. I love to ride both mountain and road. I put more hours in on the road, but nothing beats the trails. I am a certified bicycle mechanic, and worked as one for 5 years prior before i had to go to a higher paying career. excited to help out with the forums and answering questions...may even have a few of my own. On to the good stuff.
