From Northern Ontario

Hi all. I've been riding all my life, but I've only very recently come around to road bikes. The potholed moguls of asphalt we call roads and the accompanying gravel pathways in my city, Sudbury, make mountain bikes almost a necessity. But, I got into road bikes when I was living out east and loved the difference. As I climb through my 30s I find I have a love of 'old things' and I'm really interested in learning about how to break down, rebuild a bike and take proper care of a bike - specifically vintage ten speeds. I'm starting slow on my first project now, and am learning a lot from this forum. An amazingly generous community here!

Matt.
