Hello from Portland

Hi all,
My name is Christina, born and raised in Portland, OR and proud of it. I've grown up riding bikes and now at 20 years old, still haven't got a driver's license. My Bikes are a 2005 Bianchi Pista (decals stripped). Wheelset that I built recently consists of stock hubs with pink velocity rims (trendy I know, but whatever). My other bike is a steel Fuso straight out of the 80's with dura ace comoponents except for 1 ultegra shifter. Its former owner was Nike exec and bike racer Steve Wright. I am also hotly anticipating the pennyfarthing which I plan on buying this summer. I don't know how many other women actively participate in this forum but those of you who do, I would love to hear from you! I hope to see all you Portland forum people at the Sheldon Brown memorial ride on April 1st!

Hello Christina, we need photos of the Fuso! There are quite a few women here (I'm one), and one of our Administrators, donnamb, is very active in the bike scene in Portland. In fact, she's apparently off doing the Bunny ride today .

Do you do the zoobomb thing? Altbikes?

What's this about a pennyfarthing? Do tell!

Welcome to BF!
