Hi, I'm Ron Parkinson from Newton, MA. I have enjoyed the quality information on site. I like to fix bikes and the opioions here really have helped. I am a recreational rider and fit in one 25-30 mile ride a week. I have a collection of somewhat old bikes most of which say Bridgstone if that gives you an idea. I am enjoying biking in the 50 degree weather we've been having. I am trying to get my wife to try biking again but she will only ride a "women's" frame hybred and only without trafic. (This wouldn't work as my "ride"). If anyone has a suggestion of a light weight drop frame I'd love to hear it!
