Alright,

I have posted here a few times, but I thought it only polite if I introduce myself.

I am Owen, living in Saitama.

Been riding bikes my whole life; had a Specialized S-Works MTB in England (sold now :( ), rode BMX for years (still have my T1 Barcode in Japan with me), and now converting a Mama Chari into a slick single speed with the aim to rapidly convert that into a full on street screamer when I get the money for a full on groupset / road frame.

Worked in bike shops up until I was about 21, so know a fair bit about mechanics (although where I live now, I don't really have the kind LBS I can go to when I need to fiddle with expensive stuff in the back of the shop to see how it all works, so all the latest cool stuff is all new to me)

I ride 30km per day to work, and hit up Tokyo on my BMX / Mama Chari conversion so am getting my fitness back...

Anyway, rambling on a bit; nice to meet you all.

よろしく and all that!

Bloody hell, totally missed this post.

Yeah, the Mama Chari has gone through various mutations, and is still going strong.

Best 6000yen I ever spent! Haha.
