I'm a fair-weather cyclist sporting an old Raleigh Competition 10-speed which I maintain in good shape and pedal around Brookline and Boston, MA. I'm an illustrator/designer and love to cycle to my studio and back in the summer. Right now weather's great here, and I'm in good spirits, not like I was throughout the insufferable winter and "spring." Nice to find this forum. I've been on many, and appreciate the feedback.
