  4. Hablanos de tu famosa bicicleta? Tell us about your now famous bike. Yo empecé tomando piezas cuando las regalaban. Lo primero que tomé fué un sytema de frenos. Traté de ponerselos a una bicicleta que tenía de Wal-Mart, pero no les funcionó. Ahí fué cuando decidí esperar a que regalaran más piezas para ver si podia montar una completa. Cuando conseguí un cuadro, me entusiasmé más para completarla. Cuando no sabía cómo instalar algo, le preguntaba a alguien en Performance para que me enseñaran. Poco a poco fuí consiguiendo piezas hasta que pude completar la bicicleta. Algunas piezas no quedaban perfectas y tenía que hacerles pequeñas modificaciones. Estoy contento de cómo me quedó. I started taking parts from the occasional giveaways. The first thing that I got was a brake system. I tried to install them on to a bicycle that I had from Wal-Mart, but it did not work. That is when I decided to wait for more giveaways to see if I could find enough part to put one bicycle together from scratch. When I was able to find a frame, I got excited and motivated to finish it. When I did not know how to install something, I would ask people at Performance to teach me how to do it. Little by little, I was able to find more parts until I was able to complete my bike. Some parts did not fit perfectly, so I had to make small modifications to make them fit. I am happy about how my bike turned out.
  5. Qué pasatiempos o intereses disfrutas además de correr bicicletas? What hobbies/interests do you enjoy other than cycling? Me gusta pasar tiempo con mi familia y también me gusta escuchar música.  I like to spend time with my family and to listen to music.

Pero sí me gustan y les voy a conseguir algunos para mi bicicleta. I did not know what they were. I think I like them and I am going to get some for my bike.
