Hello from South Korea

Hey everyone,

I've been a fan of this forum for a while, finally decided to join up. Lots of valuable information and looking forward to being a part of a community with like-minded people who love to ride.

Anyway, here's my intro. For a while the only bike I ever rode was a BMX. As much as I liked the simplicity and near indestructibility of my old bike, it wasn't really effective for long distance trips. I ended up picking up a cheap, used fixed-gear bike to give it a try. I liked the convenience of single speed maintenance and thought it might be nice to sit while pedaling. Had no idea what I was getting myself into at the time but soon fell in love with it. A few years later, and I've been riding just about every day ever since. I commute to work, and generally look for any excuse to get out and ride.

Currently living just outside of Seoul, but sometimes I get over there to take rides along the Han River.
