I'm located in Danville, CA and I've been lurking around the forums the past few weeks soaking up all the valuable info and opinions. I started riding in the 70's on a single speed with banana seat and upright handlebars, then onto a 10-speed free spirit from Sears, then onto miscellaneous mountain/hybrid bikes in the early 90's. I haven't been on a bike since then until I recently resurrected my fully rigid cromolly mountain bike which hadn't seen the pavement since 1994. I've been riding around the neighborhood the last couple weeks really enjoying the nice weather and working out. Well, the bug bit me pretty hard. I just recently found a LBS I liked and picked up a new road bike with all the fixins and am looking forward to getting back into shape and exploring new venues and, of course, continuing to learn from this wonderful forum.
