Ha ha, I pretend that I do everything, but suspension always go to Droo. I like to think that I can do everything, but that I am smart enough to know that suspension and rebuilding Campy shifters should be done by someone who does it all the time, not a part time wannabee like me.

I like working on my bike myself where I can, it's satisfying to be able to. I've done things like bleeding brakes, suspension oil changes, etc. But I don't have the tools / workshop for everything and some things like building wheels are things I'll leave to the pros, for now :)
