We Ended Up With 33 Folks!

We ended up with 33 folks all together, including about 3-4 husband/wife combos.

Congratulations. This is great.

Things seem to have slowed down a bit.

Would be pleased to add more.

Thanks for all the responses!

I have to admit, it's a cool website. It's fun to put some faces with the names, and to read everyone's background. Good idea, Dnvr.

Oh, and by the way, you can lift the curse for Pete's sake. My front tire was flat again today, but it seems to hold it when I pump it up. I took it out for another ten miler with no problem. Obviously, i have a sloooooooow leak. I attribute that to DnvrFox. It was funny the first time, maybe two times. That's enough.

But -- as to the website -- came out really nice!

Thanks.

We still have about 50 folks we need to convince to contribute.

Oh well. Some do and some don't.

Good work, Fox. Interesting site. Cool photos. Since we can't all go out together for a frosty, I think I'll have one in everyone's honor and a second one just for you.

Thanks DF. It's been fun "seeing" and "hearing" all the stories. I sure enjoy our little cyber community. OHB

It might have slowed down cause of trouble getting to bikeforums. I haven't been able to get here for the past two days without it timing out first.

I plan to send my photo/info as soon as I can take a break from building crates for my shop machinery/equipment, motorcycles, and bicycles. I want to be "prepared" in the event my house sells and the new buyer want a quick closing. Hopefully this week......

I'll get it, probably next month. Need to dust off the old camera and check out the card. Besides the summer bike wear is better than the spring bike wear.

FYI - german coworker said those type of bikes are currently being sold in Germany. The idea is they are better trainers than trainiing wheels. There are even some wooden ones, but not wooden wheels.

Don't really have any decent pictures of me with a bicycle, but I found one taken in the winter. Maybe I'll get a better one after my new bike follows me home.

Again thank you for putting up a reference site and photos of all the regular old cronies.
