Hi folks. My name is Steve and I've been reading Bike Forums for awhile and finally registered. I am 48 years old and have just gotten back into cycling after my Cannondale R500 collected dust for about five years. I'm a past member of Cascade Bicycle Club and have ridden the annual Seattle to Portland ride 3 times. I've learned alot from the forums about new products and have used what I've learned here to do alot of upgrading to my faithful steed.
