    Hello from WAY TOO HOT Tucson

    Hello to everyone at Bike Forums. Found this site while trying to get more info on a Pinarello F 3:13. I've been riding bikes since I was six .( on and off ,of course ) Now I'm sixty. Ride about 3000 miles a year. Currently on an '04 Specialized Roubaix Comp or '03 K2 MOD 3.( back-up ) Trek 7000 MTB as well.

    Welcome to BF! Sounds like the Road Cycling forum would be a good place for you; you've probably got a lot of interesting cycling knowledge and they just love Pinarellos over there.

    Hello Mick, you've been riding a long time! Do you remember what bikes you had growing up, because the ones you've got now are quite nice.

    As for Tucson, I don't think anyone will ever get me to live in Arizona--it's just too hot for me .

    Welcome to BF!

    I started out with a Schwinn Excelsior my parents bought for me at
    a yard sale for $10. That was my first full size bike anyway. There was a smaller 24" bike before that,but I can't jog my memory on that one. As for AZ., it's hot ,but you can ride year around.......if you're willing to get up early in the summer that is.

    Moved to Tucson back in '78. You can adapt to the 'warm' summers. As stated: ride early!
    Remember, you don't have to shovel sunshine!!!
