I found this forum while following the Tour of California. What an exciting race. Stage 6 was especially exciting since at one time or another in the past I have ridden most of the route from Santa Barbara to Santa Clarita including the Balcom Canyon Wall, ouch.
For fun I ride my Cannondale Synapse. When I get a chance to commute to work, I ride my titanium framed Mongoose road bike. (Yes, the made an excellent rode bike a few years ago.)
Well, I hope to see some of you on the road in socal.
