Hey everyone, nice to be here!

Good day all! I'm a late comer to the bike enthusiasts club despite riding by choice pretty much all my life. Not blessed with wealth (father of 3) I won't be sharing much on the latest and greatest in bikes or destinations in excess of 400km from my city of Calgary. It's not like I wouldn't want to take about the newest in rides, I would rather let the experts talk.
I'm probably going to be able to chime in with tales of free finds and throwaways og quality bikes as that is my interest - free and rescue.
Not sure how long I should go on for but a few years back during down times I worked for a well known thrift chain and was sadden to see bikes getting tossed out due to some idiot not recognizing value. I haven't paid more than $5 for a bike, excluding parts, in 10 years; well, not quite- I haven't paid that much for my own bikes- the kids ride quality 2nd hand bought off of Kijiji.
I will end it here, if this is still up then I guess my writing is commensurate with others postings, it just won't be as winding.
