so...I pinched one of the links in my chain a couple days ago and almost busted my arse various times...I thought I had fixed, but to no avail.

so, I went to REI (after a failed/late attempt to go to TREK bikes) to get a new chain when I remembered,

I GET MY NEW TIRES AND WHEELS TOMORROW!!!...just a lil happy about that.

I just started getting into the whole cycling world and I'm hyped about my first big purchase...

I got my chain, went home to put it on and remembered I had to straighten my rear wheel older brother bent it when I lent it to him and up until recently, I had no idea how to fix it. It took me a while to figure it out, but I got it and was able to do a moderately good job of straightening out the gnarly warp of my wheel.

yeah...just felt like sharing a lil bit of this noob's first weeks...

(feel free to share any advice!!!)
