    Hello everyone

    Newbie to bikeforum here. I've lived in San Francisco for 25 years. I have always loved cycling; growing up in the rural midwest, bike was the ticket to anywhere else. Four years ago this month I gave away my car and now use only my bikes to get to everywhere--I have never regretted this decision!

    Hey East Hill--

    I gotta bunch o' bikes... 1) '62 Hawthorne that I restored last summer (but don't really ride), 2) a Bianchi Stelvia from the '80's that I converted to a fixed gear, 3) a Marin Lucas Vally hybrid that I use as my get all over the City bike--it is all stickered up and unassuming, so i'll lock it if I need to. 4) A Guru Newsteel road racing bike, and 5) for my 50th birthday last year I got an Atlantis by Rivendell, which is just an awesome bike. Thanks for the welcome... I'll definitely subsrcibe to car-free living forum. Thanks!
