Hey everyone, new member from Vancouver BC

hey all,

name's Andrew/Andy, and i'm a new pedal-power convert. dropped my car for human motivation about six weeks ago, and i'm having a great time with it so far.

my interest is practical road cycling, but i absolutely cannot resist trying to beat anyone that i see going my way. i'm just fumbling through all of the various things to fiddle with on the machine with the intention of becoming a very complete and competent mechanic (only for doing my own work), having done some truing and half built a wheel already.

my present best ride i've done was from where i live in Surrey to where i work in Richmond (~25.5km) in under an hour. obviously not amazing, but if there wasn't room to improve, who'd keep trying?looking forward to becoming an expert, and getting in shape.

Cheers Andrew, welcome to Bike Forums!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
