Hello from rainy Superior, WI

Just what the title says. Hello there. Just thought I'd pop in and say hey, as I've finally gotten around to registering for an account after coming across helpful answers via google as I work on my bicycle. I usually use my bicycle for commuting to and from work when the weather cooperates with me and bouncing about town, but there are quite a few trails up here that seem like they're in need of some riding. I usually don't have too much to say, so I'll just cut it off here. ^^ Nice to meet you all.

I got it into my head for some reason to strip the frame on my huffy capri and repaint it about three weeks ago now, I think. Bike was due for a good cleaning and tune up which I should have done this winter. Managed to break a bolt for the rear break in the process but it let me take it to pieces and make sure everything was in more or less working order. Good learning experience too.

Welcome, I cruised through Superior summer of '76, all the way from Seattle, headed to NY.
