Hello from Utah

Hi there! glad to be here.

I was handed down two bikes from my father that I never really took much of any interest in and let sit in a garage for years sadly up until about 6 months ago when I decided I wanted to do something in my life that included the outdoors and some adventure as a more healthy outlet to the way I was currently living.

I've since been consumed with researching and putting all my time into restoring both of them that I have posted in my photos album. Learning from the ground up how to service each component correctly has been a massive undertaking that I had no idea I was getting into at first, but am loving every patience testing, and sometimes costly minute of it through the mistakes and triumphs it brings in the process. There is still a lot of work to be done but I'm glad after lurking these forums for quiet some time I'm deciding to join the community and hopefully one day maybe even be the one contributing advice for others thanks to all the the things I'm continuing to learn from you great folks!

Utah is a great place to bike. We spend about 4 weeks a year down there biking and hiking. Glad you’ve decided to enjoy what your State has on offer!
