I am a lifelong bicycle fanatic, I have wrenched on them since I was 10, and I even worked in a shop for a few years after high school. I was a BMX Racer from 1980-1984, I read every magazine from cover to cover throughout the 80's. I transitioned to mostly freestyle riding from around 1984-1992, both flatland and vert. I now mostly ride mountain bikes. I still wrench on bikes, either building 80's BMX bikes, or doing high-end e-bike conversions.
