I used to be a member here but somehow all of my stuff has disapeared.
I'm a 46 year old mechanical designer, I live in Salt Lake City. I commute 28 miles round trip to work everyday, or ride 20 miles at lunch with xray and some other guys.
I'm a fat tire freak form the early 80's my current MTB is an 03 Kona Dawg-Deelux. Last fall under conciderable pressure from un-named sources I bought an 04 Raliegh Competition. So now I spend about 90% of my ride time on a pizza cutter and 10% on a fat tire.
At present my average speed over 18mph based upon ~800 logged miles.
We rode from the International Center to the Saltaire marina every work day (20 mile round trip) in January plus a few rides to Copperton and such. Lets just say we got real good at cold weather gear. The coldest day was 19f. Then I got sent to Texas in Feb. it was a bit nicer there. Now I'm back in SLC and the weather is perfect.
