Hello from Burlington, Ontario!

I came across this website while looking for parts and information to build up an old Bianchi road bike into a fixed gear/singlespeed commuter bike. And I found some helpful links to Canadian websites, as well as useful info on other things fixed. This is my first foray into the SS/FG realm, although I've been riding for the last ten years to varying degrees. I first got hooked on cycling when the only way of getting to a summer job was by bike (I had no car then -- and still don't). I figured I could either hate it or love it, and obviously the latter won out. I rode that Supercycle far more than it was ever intended to be ridden, and I think ultimately sold it for an appropriately pitiful sum to a friend. A few years and bikes later, a friend of mine encouraged me to start running, and I found myself competing in duathlons shortly thereafter. I got a decent road bike and then was totally hooked. I raced for three years, and then for various reasons moved on, but I still ride as much as I can, and can't ever really see myself not riding. I've ridden off-road too, but since someone recently liberated my mediocre mtb/commuter, the trail riding has been temporarily suspended. Hence the Bianchi (for commuting, not off-road obviously), which is coming along nicely. I'm looking forward to exploring yet another subset of the cycling world, and also this forum.
