Hello from Norn Iron
#1
Hi just a quick hello from Northern Ireland. Found this site through trusty old google when I was looking for some tips on bike maintenance. Love the site and the videos are fantastic.
I found a pretty bust up and rusted Falcon Viper mountain bike in a collapsed shed. So I needed some tips on changing components etc. Will get some pictures up in "show off your bike" later. Been cycling off and on since I was a nipper, unfortunately slightly older now and love cycling for pleasure, fitness and I really could not be bothered with the car in this economic climate.
Thanks.

Not to highjack this post but an idea for ya Darren is to fix up a couple of the kids bikes and trade for a nice MTB, Road, or Cruiser bike. Just a thought Wink
