    Breaker one-nine. This here is the RockyMtnMerlin. I live up in Wyoming and I ride a fancy titanuim bicycle.


    Where it all started,

    "Ah, breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Pig Pen, c'mon? Ah, yeah, 10-4, Pig Pen, fer shure, fer shure. By golly, it's clean clear to Flag Town, c'mon. Yeah, that's a big 10-4 there, Pig Pen, yeah, we definitely got the front door, good buddy. Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy...

    Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June in a Kenworth pullin' logs
    Cab-over Pete with a reefer on and a Jimmy haulin' hogs
    We was huntin' for bear on I-one-oh 'bout a mile outta Shaky Town
    I says, Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck and I'm about to put the hammer down. "

    It means I didn't think very hard about it when I joined the forum.

    Some of the gals I ride with call me "Bruce Almighty". Affectionately, I think. Shoulda used that, maybe.

    "People who spend most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles." - Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman

    Not being creative or being lazy or both I have just always stuck with my IT username that was handed out to me 25 years ago. First 6 letters of my last name + first initial + middle initial. Also means I have less to remember, I keep my gray matter reserved for important stuff like what are good years for cabernets

    For those that care, for Napa Cabernet 1968, 1974, 1985 & 1994
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    One of many derivatives of my surname. I grew up with this name. So, showing a decided lack of imagination, I named my bike shop Crum Cycles. I have been a Crum my whole life. A fact my wife reminds me of on a regular basis.

    My CB handle on the other hand is "Guardrail". A reference to my one serious truck accident when I jack knifed on black ice in PA in 1977, tore up 100 feet of guardrail and then plummeted into a ravine. I walked away but was charged by the State of Pennsylvania $100/ft for the guardrail I mangled. Hence my signature, "keep it 'tween the ditches".

    Mine came from learning to ski with 2 friends. I was the youngest at 35, the other were somewhat older. For the first three seasons of skiing, every trail we ventured on was prefaced by at least one of us saying "how steep is it?" , I liked it so I took the name. The Toes signature comes from a very long time ago (circa 1972) one of the bike club members started calling me Terry Toeclips . Toes just kind of stuck.

    My other avocation is jazz guitar. Like my professional cycling career, I make lots of money at it (kidding!).

    All it represents is the "other" hobby that I enjoy with my first name and last initial. My racer friends refer to me as karterjimm. Being in the karting motorsports at age 67 is a feat in itself. I use the cycling as a conditioning for kart racing.

    Cheeseflavor... no idea. It was silly enough and really means nothing.

    Also, it sounds more original than "Steve".

    My first name is Reece. A long time ago, I was registering for some site online (ebay, maybe?), and there was already a reece. So I went with reece2. It's what I use for most online registrations.

    It all started when I told my wife (then fiance) the story of me as a seven year old sitting on the back porch with a live turtle, a screw driver, and pictures of that Bugs Bunny cartoon where he races the turtle and the turtle keeps hopping out of his shell in my head....

    She called me Turtleguy from then on.

    We raised rabbits many years ago. We had named them after startrek, Spook, Kirk, and so forth. We named our little farm Starship Bunnies, and have been using starship for email for a long time!

    My bike is blue, and my favorite ride is going up Highway 40 near my house from the Hogback to the top at Genesee. Denver-area folks'll know what I mean.

    OK
    My job in the Navy was as an Aviation Bosn's mate and our rating insigna was a Flying Anchor, an anchor with wings. I thought it kind of sounded like me on a bike. Flying and dragging an anchor.
    No avator, have never figured out how to make that happen.

    I have been in the oil, natural gas and chemical businesses almost all my working life and my business is at zip 15106. And no, everyone in the business has not gotten filthy rich off high oil prices. This has been one of our worst years in the last 5.
