Hi everyone! My name is Maciek. I just turned 27 and I live in Chicago. I've been avidly riding my bike since i was a little kid but I've only recent been looking to turn it into a more serious of a hobby. I got myself a 2017 Fuji Touring bike when i first moved to the city several years ago. Its comfortable but extremely heavy. I'm looking to build my first aluminum bike within the next year and I've heard there's a lot of smart people on this forum that could help me out with some of the fundamentals. Excited to join the community!
