Howdy, I guess.

I always feel lame introducing myself on forums.

I'm Halfpoundbobby.

I was religious about riding bikes from about age 4-19, mostly bmx and road bikes as a teenager.

Fast forward through a decade of not touching a bicycle at all, and here we are.


I recently reacquired my hoarded collection of bicycles from my childhood, and some that predate my existence. So far, I've cannibalized a few into one serviceable mtb/bmx/cruiser/touring thing, and I'm close to finishing with reassembly.


Next up is building a trailer to strap my offspring into so they can accompany me on rides.


I have my eye on completing my first century ride since George W. Bush's presidency, and attempting to make a few bucks building one-off custom bikes. Getting my hands on all these old bikes has been really inspiring.


Thanks for having me.

Welcome to Bike Forums! I had a similar relationship with bikes, only I went from "ride a bike everywhere to do everything" to not touching anything with 2 wheels for almost 25 years.

Welcome. Many of us have gotten back into cycling that we enjoyed in our youth. It’s fun.

Lurk a while, drop right in...we'd all love to hear how your century preparation is coming along.

Make 10 posts around the place and show us your bike(s).

And @Dordetin it's as easy as one pedal down and one up, repeat on the opposite pedals.
