New: Take part in the April Giveaway for an Electric Bicycle Roadster V2 from Ride1UP


Hello all, from a new guy
#1
Hello, just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for making what looks like a really useful resource/community available. I'm in the Uk and I'm part way thru my first proper bike restoration project - an old MTB I was given (nothing of any great quality so doesn't matter if I muck it up) and I was hoping for bits and pieces of advice as I go along. I've got a few pics of the process so far so I'll probably stick a few of those up sometime if that's ok. Cheers
Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Hey welcome pull up a seat and stay a while good to have you on board.

Remember it's mind over matter
if you don't mind it doesn't matter

Hi Cheule and Adam15, good to meet you. How's your restoration going Cheule and what frame are you restoring if you don't mind me asking?
