Default Re: Been gone, now I'm back

Cool. I followed a pattern something like yours. Built two bikes in the spring of 2008. I liked them and had fun. But as they died I got a bit discouraged over how much time I was putting into keeping them working. So I dropped out for a couple of years.

Then I got the urge again and built another. With the experience from the first two, I've found that I understand things better and am not finding maintenance to be quite so much of a headache.

I also keep a spare bike, too. Even though this one is more reliable I still need some sort of backup.

Have fun.
