Hola from sunny Albuquerque. I grew up here but left for Alaska in my early 20s and spent 30 years up there. I had a bike shop in a small town (Homer) and built my first mountain bike out of an old Schwinn. I may have been the first to sell mountain bikes in Alaska, when I bought a dozen Stumpjumpers and sold them to friends at cost around 1980 or so. Anyhow, been riding all my life. Now own a Roubaix road bike, Blur mountain bike and am turning an old Klein Adroit Pro into a single-speed townie.
