Hello Everyone, Long Time Listener, First Time Caller.

Hi there,

I've been perusing these forums for quite awhile, and have come across many great answers to questions I wanted to ask someone but had no one to ask. After cycling for a few years now, I've decided to finally register for the site and start posting myself.

I guess I am what the forum culture refers to as a Clydesdale. I am 23 years old, 6'5", and about 200 lbs. I started last season at about 240 lbs, and finished it at 200. Over winter I gained back a few lbs, but look forward to hitting my goal weight of 180lbs, over the course of this season. I ride to and from work every day, and very rarely take my car for anything these days. It mostly sits collecting dust. I make time for "leisure" rides whenever I can and often spend 6 hours or so in the saddle several days a week if I can. Since beginning, cycling has quickly consumed the entirety of my hobby time, and I am glad for it.

In addition to riding, I've began to grow an appreciation for wrenching on my own bicycles. Just today I bought a Centurion Comp TA frame that I intend to build up entirely into something I can be proud of.

Uhm, well, I guess if anyone has any questions feel free to let me know.

Thanks a bunch! I am glad to get a chance to actually commune with the people I've been stealing answers from all this time.
