Hi folks, I've been reading these threads for a while, now. Gotten a lot of entertainment and good info from them, so I thought that I would join up.
At 47 yo, I'm a lifelong bicyclist and motorcyclist living in Minneapolis, love to be on two wheels and would just as soon wrench as ride. My interests are all over: classic and vintage, mountain, road, mechanics, tandems, winter, family, Brooks saddles on a couple of my bikes, etc.
Currently have a mid '70s Maruishi Emperor (restored from found junk), early '80s Fuji Club w/105 8 speed for the road, '95 Trek 6500 aluminum mountain bike (everything replaced and upgraded as I trashed it), late '60s Schwinn Twinn tandem with 2 speed kick back (also restored from found junk) that I ride with my son. He is 16 and has Down Syndome, not quite able to balance his ownbike yet, so we've borrowed a Phat Cycles Limo tandem, 7 speed grip shift, from his mom (we're divorced) to ride the MS150 for the second time together. This will be my 13th time on the 150.
Happy to be here,
