Hello There!

Hi! I'm not only new here, but also relatively new to the world of cycling. I've been riding bikes for fun for my whole life, but the hobby didn't actually start until I found what ended up being a rusty 1958 Raleigh Sports in November 2013. I rode it in its original condition for the rest of the school year, doing tons of research in the meantime, before completely disassembling, de-rusting, and repainting it in summer '14 to extend its life. I've been a hardcore car guy since age 4, but the Sports really got me into bikes. It's something more feasible during the college years, anyway. I also have a '79 Ross Gran Tour, a low-end ten speed that I received for free and proceeded to revive it with other junk components. It's not nice, but it works. I've become a huge fan of old English 3-speeds and seem to prefer steel bikes in general. After a year of surfing the web, I finally broke down and joined the forum because I had too many questions I couldn't find answers to. By the way, I've lived in the Metro Detroit area for my whole life and go to school (commuting by bike every day) in hilly Ann Arbor so my bike builds will be related to that. Anyway, I hope to learn some stuff from y'all and I will definitely contribute when I can meaningfully do so.
