Hello All!

John

I live in Croston, between Preston and Southport.

I mainly ride a Bontrager Privateer Comp at the moment, just building up my Race Lite though so this will share duties when I finally get it finished!

I mostly ride around the Rivington area and at Grizedale and other locations in the lakes..... Don't get out on the bike as much as I should but I'm working on it!

My real name is John Hamar Fenton.... Been konwn by my middle name Hamar (its norweigian!) since birth but I often call myself John in correspondance so as to avoid confusion!

Ah interesting. Another Scandinavian connection.
I'm half Swedish and my proper first name is Paul Anders. I seem to spent most of my time explaining that its a two part first name which is not hyphenated, rather than the common misconception that I have a double-barelled surname.

Anyway, welcome to the NW&NWA forum.

Just another addition

Neuroportal, Ben, Wirral. Currently on a Voodoo Erzulie (orig) converted to single. Have a few others lying around if you add the bits up. :)

May catch some of you at some point if the winter salt doesnt kill my ride beforehand.
