Moved here a year ago from Anacortes, WA and am here for another year. That whole career progression thing.
I ride a Litespeed Tuscany road and Specialized Enduro off road.
I'm not anywhere near politically correct, drive a diesel hogging, road hogging pickup (it's for sale; I want a bigger one!) and prefer wearing flannel/chamois shirts (when it's not hotter than you know where around here - which is most of the year!), though I don't consider them dress shirts. I ski, fly airplanes and of course, bike but not nearly enough... drivers down here scare the heck out of me, even in my truck!
I've traveled quite a bit, been fortunate enough to ski lots of places in this country, Canada and Europe. I've biked in WA, UT, ID, CO, ME and TX.
Welcome to Tx.! There is not a big population of politically correct people here in this state anyway so do not feel out of place. Also as I am sure you know already there are alot of big diesel trucks here as well. As a matter of fact I have a Ford F-350 Super Duty 4WD turbo diesel, and a 73 Ford F-150 with a big block 390 V8!
I am sure alot of forum people here LOVE this!
However I do own a bike shop and have almost too many rigs right now, and not enough time to ride them all. Anyway if you need some good trail locations let me know.
scuba - yep, sure was! I ride mostly the paved trails around here, though I did do a ride down by Joe Pool Lake a couple weeks ago. One of these days, I'll ride on some of the roads north and/or south of town, where everyone's not actively trying to kill me! Where in Arlington are you - I'm near UTA.
For off road, I've only ridden at Cedar Hill. I'm open to suggestions for where to go mtbing.
Hunter - must be nice, in a way at least, to have too many bikes to choose from! I like both of mine and don't really think I need any more. Well, OK, I could probably use a nice Ti hardtail for the riding down here....
