yeah, I'm new and I'v e been lurking. Finally back on bikes after about 10 years..! Last time I broke my elbow MTBing. Silly monkey! Denver Colorado is home. Plenty of motorcycles but I thought it was time to park them and the car for my health and all the other hippy ideals...and yes I wear Birkenstocks. THey match all the tattoos on the legs and arms...
I'm liking this place here alot. I don't see to many (none really) Clydes/Athenas on my daily commute. I will always be a Clyde. 6'2" tall and wear a 60-62 jacket tipping the scales at 307. Im not shrinking anytime soon. Certainly not gonna see the sub 200 in this life!
I ride a 2007 Giant Yukon set up for commuting with an old MC tankbag on the back rack, lights all over, cyclo 'puter, bar ends, WTB speed5 seat and my favorite pieces, the Continental TravelContacts. So far only one patch on the tube. Alot of time spent with tweezers and needlenose tho'.
Looking to get a hybrid/road of some sort. Prolly a Raleigh.
So yeah. So far I've put on 500 miles in 6 weeks on the new bike. I'm thrilled! Love it!! Hoping to do a century, metric at least before year end. I'd also like to hit 1000 miles before years end. We will see...Haven't seen alot of people doing this on MTBs...
so yeah. Thats my long winded intro...
I notiched quite a few commuters here. Any one doing it on a MTB? A Century?
ok, thats enough.
Glad to meet you all!
