Hello, Looks like the moratorium on new members has been lifted, so I was able to register myself today. I thought maybe I should introduce myself.
Not sure of the protocol on these forums, so if I'm out of line, somebody please set me straight.
My name is Rik, I'm from central Minnesota, where unfortunately, it's been snowing the last few days, so no bike riding for me 'til the streets dry up a bit. Just bought a couple of Strida 3s for the wife and I to use on our sailboat. And, being I've decided folding bikes are the coolest thing since sliced bread, I broke down and bought a Downtube VIII FS to cover my more hot rod type urges........ then it started snowing, oh well.......
I've picked up a lot of useful info from these pages so far and I thank you all for that. I'll look forward to coming in on a regular basis and learning lots more useful stuff as I re-enter a pastime that I'd put on the back burner some 35 or so years ago.
Glad to meet you all
