Hi starkmojo, what kind of riding do you do? ZooBomber? Dropout Club? Ready for Pedalpalooza?
Welcome to BF!

I never know wht to write on these things so thanks for the questions...
I ride a Cannondale CAAD 8 for distance, A Jamis Coda with buckets to the grocery store, and my Mtn bike out at exit 18 with the dog. I shoot for 80 miles a week, hit 60 usually :(.
My fvorite places to ride are: down Clinton St, The springwater trail out the end of the pavement and back, the eslpenade in the very early am before the walkers are out... I like to ride fast on the Cannondale, putter on the Jamis... I love flashing lights going in streams over the Hawthorne bridge at dusk or thinking I am kicking ass and have a bunch of serious bikers blow by me s if I was parked.:D
Yesterday was cool cause everyone was out, young, old, serious, cruisers, a jeans and Tshirt kind of day. sigh..
Never zoobombed, it seem like cheating to take the MAX uphill to me (although I love that Portland has a culture like that) I also love minibike riders and tall bikes, although I cant see myself on either- being too tall for one and to clumsy for the other.
Going to do the next MMR when I dont have to work the next day... certainly!

Check out the AltBike forum--there's some video clips and links for the ZooBomb MiniBike Winter that just occurred. You might find it more interesting than you realised :D .
