List a few of your noobiest moments with ur SSFG (being as green as I am, I figured I could actually contribute to a thread like this)
These all happened within the last 2 weeks (since that is my entire SSFG and, really, biking lifetime):
1. When you use goo-b-gone to get off decals, don't let it run down the top-tube and vaporize the adhesive on one or all of your rear brake-cable stays. This may or may not have happened to me.
2. Steel wool is not a good way to get decals off your frame.
3. Make sure your seat-post stay is tight. I rode about 25 miles roundtrip the other day and by the time I was 10 miles out, I realized that my normally aggressive position had come to resemble that of a beach-cruiser... my saddle had gradually lowered about 7 inches.
4. Make sure you have tools with you. After my seat post had lowered 7 inches, I had no way of readjusting it. Fun ride back, with my legs bottoming out on the pedals with knees at about a 45 degree angle.
