Greetings from Albany CA

I first logged into these forums back in 2007. I was just getting into fixed. I lived in Massachusetts back then and was hoping to find other fixed riders like myself. I didn't find any riders in my area and disappeared from the forum after that. Now I'm in CA. I still love fixed. I love the simplicity of it. I love riding but I'm also into the mechanics and engineering behind them. No better way to break into bicycle mechanics than with a fixed / single speed. Some of my favorite moments are spent just tinkering with my bicycle. I think I enjoy working on my bicycle more than riding it! I went from tinkering to wanting to build my own frame. Two years ago I took a class and tig welded my first bicycle frame. Today, I'm working on building my own frame, on my own. I joined the forum again because I found the frame builders section. Lots of great builds in here. I look forward to building with you!

-Steve
