    New clyderider from the seattle area

    Hello,

    First, I want to comment on how great this site is. It's been a great resource so far.

    I've started cycling for these reasons:

    1) I'm training to climb Mt. Rainier and running isn't good on my clydesdale frame (6'2" 245lbs)
    2) My pickup truck is aging fast and I don't want to replace it with another car
    3) I was an auto mechanic for the better part of 10 years and I harbor a passionate hatred of cars
    4) I like how simple bicycles are compared to other modes of transportation

    My ride of choice is a 2006 Specialized Allez triple. The LBS gave me a deal on it and i'm sure it'll make for a nice commuter.

    I'm also interested in bike mechanics. My project bike is a Specialized Allez M2 Comp. I'm unsure on what to turn it into.

    Thanks again for the great site!
    Clydesdale pride!!

    This is only a test life. If it were a real life, we'd be provided with user manuals......AND a warranty.

    Welcome to the site. I'm relatively new here myself--just over the mountain from you in Cle Elum. There's also a Pacific Northwest Thread on here that you should introduce yourself on.

    Be sure to check in in Clyde's as well.

    There are at least a couple Clyde's in your area.

    What part of the Seattle area are you in?

    There are a number of Clydes here locally, and they are all very nice folks!
