Born AGAIN!

I've been riding bicycles since I was a little kid and I never lost that passion until I was honorably discharged from the Navy. I was hurt during the Gulf War (first one) and thought I would never recover. Bad back injuries never seem to heal and recently, I thought I would never be able to ride again. That's when I discovered the "single speed" world. With a new found interest in building single speed bikes and riding again things are looking up. We were all there as kids and I think we forgot how fun it is to just get on a bike and ride. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated, just ride.
