    Newbie Onboard

    Hello to everyone out there. I did a lot of riding in the early to mid 90's but very little since then. I'll be 65 in Sept and for some reason I'm starting to get the itch to start up again. Am I crazy or what? Anyway I picked up a Jamis Nova (2004) last week minus wheels, seat and seatpost and fork, needless to say it will be a work in progress for a week or two.
    So with that said, where should I post questions about a good budget fork, headset and wheelset? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Depending on the question, the bikes and frames sub-forum, the components and wrenching one, or this one.

    Welcome to RBR! Good luck finishing the Jamis!
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    welcome racfan12
    Have fun, used to bike every where as a kid, Puegout UO8 days (late 60's/early 70's)
    then stopped until I turned 60. Still at it, not a racer, not a "die hard" push to the max rider, generally 25 - 35 mile each. have done some of the epic stuff Yellowstone, over Beartooth pass, RAGBRAI, Skyline drive in VA. I like long distance,

    Have fun and we aren't too old!
