    Florida here

    Hello from central florida..... been riding ever since my dad let go of my seat in the driveway )

    First it was an old schwinn...blue with silver, i was too small to sit on the seat even when dropped so i rode on the back fender pedaling chopper style!!!

    next up was a purple schwinn with a gold bananna seat!! tassles and all... it got me thru jr.high -- yeah it was geeky but hey it went like the wind! FREEDOM

    when i left home the bmx phase was just getting started so i got a schwinn predator...i think i liked it cause of the wheels....that bike and i did everything together. )

    in 1992 i walked into LBS and fell in love with the Mongoose Rockadile -- still have it -- stock-- it's my commuter bike, since my commute affords me dirt and grass !! 24 miles roundtrip...it does the job.

    One day, one day MAYBE i'll retire it....maybe.

    Say what you like it's a good friend.

    Hello there,

    I used to race sprint adventure races in north and central florida, but now I am just a graduate student fighting becoming overweighted. I ride around the MetroWest area as well as West Orange Trail every now and then. It's easy to recognize: Me and my girlfriend are the only ones riding 20" FOLDERS in central Florida (as far as I know).

    This forum is a great place, never had a problem on my bike that couldn't be fixed by coming here.

    See you around,

    Rafael
