    You, the bikes you buy, built and sold and ultimately your journey to where you are now

    Never considered myself a true bicycle enthusiast. I see something I like, buy it if it's cheap enough, do some maintenance and ride it. Invariably someone (family, neighbor, bystander) thinks that I have something Awesome, and I let them have it free or cheap. Due to being Working Poor...

    What are you listening to?

    Well, i've been nostalgic for The Protomen lately: Why yes, they released two concept albums based on a popular videogame! Despite this, the first album has enough energy to reanimate an army of Ancient Mummies, and the Second album has enough soul and pathos to make Satan weep in sympathy...

    Haunted by an old favorite lately-Roky Erickson (an yep, that's how he spells it). A favorite of ZZ Top, a major influence on Texas Blues and a performer who never stopped improving until the day he was gone:

    I’m new, I’m new, I don’t know what to do.

    Calipers are about to be your very best friend johnsmith! :grin: You don't need a lot of fancy tools or knowledge to get started either! If you have a Friendly Local Bike Shop nearby, just carry the parts in question in the store and see what they recommend for tools and replacement parts-as...
