Howdy! I'm a year-round cyclist who currently lives in Manchester, NH. I do maintenance at a (not-so-nearby) library, and I have worked as a mechanic at a bike shop, so I have a fair bit of experience making broken things slightly less broken. Also, I've been wrenching on my own piles of garbage since I was a wee lad, so I know how to make broken things unfixable, as well.
I really like old bits, especially the old tubular wheels, steel hubs, cottered cranks (I've had to quit riding them, though), & leather saddles. If I could afford it, I'd be a collector, but as it is, I'm just a crabby retrogrouch with a bunch of old junk in boxes.
I've been browsing this site for a number of years, & I have a few things I feel I ought to post, as they're not in the database, so I made this here account.
