hey -- bigpedaler's a clydesdale (duh!) mtb'er/commuter/mechanic/fanatic. i build my own stuff, assemble crap for a major box store (hey, i got a mortgage, lbs can't pay me what i need!), and do repair/upgrade on the side. back problems put me on full suss, but i'll put in some miles. look forward to meshing in, maybe even give a bit of help to somebody...IT CAN HAPPEN! STOP LAUGHING!
