Member of numerous bike forums.
Started riding as a lad in San Diego and been hooked ever since. Started with stingrays, migrated to BMX (and boards) and then road bikes. I was stuck on collecting the rays for a bit while still hitting the roads almost daily on my roadie. I guess deep down that is who I really am. If I can't ride it until it hurts it drives me crazy. On the Schwinn forum am known as Fastback Maniac. My love for Schwinn Fastbacks and my maniac behavior of having to ride the roads so much. Love hitting those back roads.
I have a few English 3 speeds in my stable as well.
Anyway, hope to be getting to know and meet some new bike fanatics. I have meet numerous individuals in this sport/hobby over the years.
Vote to help get Levi into the Tour de France if you haven't already. Congrats Levi on Tour of California.
Sheldon you will always be in our memories....
