Joey from New Orleans here.
Next April I hit 50 years of age.
Been biking since, well, can't remember. Not 'cause I'm old! My folks tell me they started me on a trike at age 3. Got serious at age 15. Been fast ever since.
No car for 19 years. Didn't use them much when I had one.
Current commute is 17 miles each way minimum. It involves bike paths and fast and furious riding through the concrete "jungle". Commute on the road bike takes 50 to 55 minutes door to door.
Favorite bike this week: Vintage Miyata road bike circa 1990.
Other Bikes: Surly Pugsley 2006 and a Converted Marin Pine Mountain (to Touring Bike) from 1990 as well (It was a very good year).
Also: Joe Breeze Itzy flolding 1-speeder.
I work at Bicycle Michael's in the Bywater section of the city.
Nothing against fixies here - I'm into gears and brakes. I ride as fast as I can pretty much all the time.
I am happy to be here at BikeForum. Looks like a cool place.
