    Denver bike junkie.

    I'm a 35 year old male - just turned 35, today's my birthday. I transplanted to Colorado from the East Coast 10 years ago. A few years ago I lost my drivers license, which rekindled my childhood love of bicycling. The bus sucks! I ride a Trek 2200 road bike (aluminum frame, carbon fork, Shimano Ultegra/105), but lately I've been spending more time on my Trek Fuel EX7 (aluminum full suspension frame, hydraulic disc brakes) mountain bike. I also have a Cannondale F300 (solid aluminum frame, headshok) that I am rebuilding. I broke my femur (thigh bone) the day before Thanksgiving, and was riding my bike within days of being able to walk again.

    Hello lincolns2, you should have a number of fellow Coloradans descending on you before too long, so I'll just make it brief:

    Hi lincolns2.

    Welcome to bikeforums. YIKES how did you break your Femur??? Was it a bike accident??

    Anyhoo, check out the regional forum under Mountain-Plains. There are some other Denver people to hook up with.
    I too ride both road/mtb.

    Take Care

    Yes, it was a bike accident. In one of my less intelligent decision making moments, I decided to take my new mountain bike to the Denver Skatepark. I did OK for a couple of hours, but the last maneuver I pulled was a hip-plant at the bottom of one of the pools. That was my last ride of last season, the day before Thanksgiving.

    Chin to the ground thingys are the worst. I have two chipped (repaired) front teeth to prove it.
