Default Re: Build or Ride? Which Do You Enjoy More?

For me it's a 60/40 thing. I love to build and it is what helps me keep what little of my sanity I have left. Don't get me wrong here. I LOVE to ride and have since I was 4 years old. But the hunt for the perfect fitment, look, material, durability aspect of each component I use/ misuse, re-use, fabricate, mutilate is what keeps me going.
To ride what my mind's eye has thought up is just the icing on the cake.
I like cake... more than icing.

Geezer, I too am sorry to hear of your loss. I think it is just awesome that of all the things in this world that could have motivated you to pull up and out of that downward spiral, motorized bicycles were the right thing.
I hope that you and your sons will continue to enjoy this hobby for years to come!
Also, thank you for finding us here and joining our little community!
