Hi, folks!

I'm a bike tech/service manager in Cleveland ,OH. A former Cat. 3, and Mtn. bike racer, now just a half-fast recreational type. I'm 50 years young, ride a Soma Smoothie named Eyre. Usually ride about 4,000 miles a year, last year half that, as I got married this July, and have been spending a lot of time with my bride. She understands how important cycling is to me for health, my work, etc. so I got the green light to ride more as soon as the salt and slush is off the roads. I,m also saving up for a cyclocrosser this year!
Anyways, just want to intro myself. ride lots, ride safe!

Hello 4130gibson, it's good to have one's spouse understand about the passion for cycling, saves on a lot of trouble down the road . Lots of forums that could be of interest to you, including one open only to those in the business (check in the Bicycle Mechanics forum), so good luck and

Welcome to BF!

Yes, we have one, but my wife only rides 5 or 6 times a season... usually10-15 mi. she much prefers walking. We have a 2 yr.old Trek T-900, it's a porker, but was cheap with employee discount, and I get a great workout, so it serves the purpose.
Thanks for the welcome, guys! Sring is near!!
