New here, wanted to say hi.

Hi all, I've watched from the outside for some time and made a few posts but no formal intro. I just wanted to see where I thought I might fit in best. I also post over in the clydesdale forum. I was wondering if I could come play in your sandlot.

Welcome Pat, you've found the oddball sub-forum of BikeForums. Embrace your inner weirdness.

I ride a '05 Giant ocr c1, '00 specialized FSR rockhopper, an old Kinesis cross bike as my commuter

Hi Pat. Welcome to Foo, where all are welcome with open arms.

One thing you gotta know about Foo. You post once and you're stuck.

You can never go back. You are trapped here. Forever.

Darn it Siu....you weren't supposed to tell him. We all wanted to hear the screams when he figured it out on his own.
