I recently took up cycling (last 2 years). Had to quit running or face a nasty heel surgery. I have gotten on here and complained of how a lot of guys fiddle and tweak and build bikes. I thought it was all about the riding. I was wrong. I am not getting into building a bike and I love it. It seems to be another aspect of cycling. I feel more involved and it is all your fault. I hung around this site long enought for you guys to get me addicted to both riding and tinkering. You are to blame. I am even planning a tour this summer on a bike I put together. I find myselft looking for old yard sale bikes to build. Is that normal?
