    Checking in from Rochester, NY

    Hi folks,

    My name is Jason Crane. I ride an Xtracycle (based on a Giant Sedona DX), a Motobecane Nomade I from 1982 (when they were still made in France) and a Motobecane Mirage from the late 70s.

    I run a site called RocBike.com. It's a cycling culture site feature daily link collections, news about cycling (particularly commuting), essays from a range of different riders, and a podcast called The RocBike Review.

    I've been riding a bike on and off since I was a little kid. I rode quite a bit when I lived in Japan for several years, and I just started riding again this summer (2007). Since June, I've put more than 1,100 miles on my bike and become a daily cycle commuter -- nearly car free.

    In the rest of my life, I'm a union organizer for UNITE HERE and I host a jazz interview show call The Jazz Session.

    Nice to meet you!

    Jason

    Hello Jason, my kind of guy (you need to visit the C & V forum...) . I love your site, and I will be returning to look at it more thoroughly.

    Welcome to BF!

    I do believe I work with a friend of your's at MCC.

    And I do believe I'll be meeting you when(if) you come in for the Sustainability Day at MCC where I/we'll be having a table there of bike info geared toward commuting.

    Welcome aboard.

    Hey Jason, good to see you on here, on another one of my browser bookmarks (right after rocbike of course

    I like taking pictures of bikes almost as much as I like riding them.

    Welcome, Jason. What a great site.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Thanks for the kind words, everybody. And yes, getting that plate request through the South Carolina DMV was a proud moment!
