Canadian Eh!

Hi there, my name is Scott and I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I've been biking off and on for over 13 years now. I mainly do cross country or street riding. I hope to learn a lot here and possibly on how to build up a bike, since I have always wanted to do that. I look forward to spending my time here.

Cheers

Thanks for the welcomes Sixty Fiver and East Hill.

To answer your question East Hill, I have a Santa Cruz blur and an old Olympics road bike.

stop making everyone think we all say 'Eh".


i work tourism and i get it all the time... from southerners, of course.

[drawl]Why don't you say Eh all the time?[/drawl]
Well, Sir, not everyone in Canada sounds like a canadian tire commercial.



enough ranting!

My Uncle lives in the T-Dot too, and also rides. He rides one of those mini bikes from WalMart. He loves it.

Welcome from another Torontonian! There's tons of great info on bike mechanics on here free for the searching. Also, in case you don't already know this site, go to https://www.sheldonbrown.com/. He's got a wealth of information on bike maintenance, repair, parts, etc.
