Hi there

Hi,

I'm Johann, from Prince Albert, South Africa.

Please forgive my sins, I made a few posts in the https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...1#post11662993 thread before introducing myself

I spend way too much of my time fiddling with bikes or researching bike related issues (that's how I ended up building an XtraBike

Bikeforums is an immense resource, thank you all for sharing.

Johann

Welcome to Bike Forums, Johann! It looks like you had no trouble finding the Utility Cycling forum. That's a nice bike project you have going.

Thank you both for the welcome.

Build progressing well, I'm currently designing frame packs to utilize those "triangular" spaces.

Hoe gaan did boet?
not many south africans here at BF.
I didn't spend too much time in the cape area, mostly up in Jo'burg working
or in Mocambique or Sodwanna bay diving.

May Bru!

Not many home boys here, maybe that's why it's so refreshing, away from all the local politics.

This site is a huge resource, thanks to all of you who keep it going.

I'm very involved with the Freedom Challenge (www.freedomchallenge.org.za), they refer to me as The Village Headman (maybe because they are too scared to call me the village idiot to my face and when they get this deep inland, they need every wannabee bike mech they can find.......The next race starts mid June 2011. In fact, I'm hoping to ride the route before then (no, I'm not a racer) . Just tour it and enjoy the ride.

Maybe even start a thread on it for all the expat boertjies out in the wider universe?

mooi ray (have to put in some code now and then ...)
