This is quite a community here! I'm 33 years old and from the Akron/Cleveland area in Ohio. Although I've had both a road bike and mountain bike for years, I only just recently discovered I had at least a mild passion for cycling. I suspect it is something deeper...
I have a mid 90's Trek 6000 and also a late 80's Univega Vivatech 1050 with mostly Shimano 105 components. These days, I usually opt to take my road bike out.. I'm probably getting in 50 to 60 miles a week. I just love the feeling of speed, efficiency, and responsiveness the road bike provides.
My interests are mainly fitness and recreation at this point, but I'm inspired from many of the people using a bicycle to commute to work and I would like to try that someday.
Thanks for the chance to say hello!
