Introductions - Hi from Seattle
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I've been lurking on the forums for quite some time now - figured I'd say hi. I ride road and mountain. Always looking for great trails and/or roads. Currently Have: Trek Y (mountain), Jamis Ventura Sport, Moto Grand Sprint. Hope to get to know you guys better.

Yo to Jimmy A from another local Moto Grand Sprint owner.
Right on... how long have you been riding?

About 32 years.
Have you done any modifications to the moto?

Not really. After some judicious adjustment, the stock components fit me to a 'T'. I put a gel pad on the stock saddle, which I do for all my bikes, so I can use unpadded shorts or tights. I did put a QR seatpost clamp on, a computer, a couple of bottle cages and a handlebar bag. I have a set of Ultra Gatorskins for when the stock Kenda tires wear out. Since I only use platform pedals these days, I put on a set of Performance low-profile platform pedals.
Sounds good - You like the platforms a lot more? I have the ones that came with it right now, and I don't like them too much. I've put ona new seat (terry fly) and threw on some different tires, bottle cages, seat bag, and a comouter. I also put on a 40 cm handlebar (from the Jamis).
Did you get out for a ride today? Bit windy, but no rain. Gotta love it.
