new to the Forums from Denver

Hi, I'm Robin. I'm new to the site, less new to cycling.

I bike commute and I'm planning to take some short tours (supported and solo) this summer. I'll have more to say once I get in on the other conversations...

Always nice to have new folks here on Bike Forums - especially hippies.

Hello Robin, we definitely have nothing against hippies here, as long as you are riding a bicycle . What bike or bikes are you riding?

Welcome to BF!

I've stumbled in to the right place.
I'm riding a Long Haul Trucker, I also have a Nishiki Century that I'm thinking of converting to a single speed.

I have chicken legs. Very functional chicken legs.

I started building wheels for my LHT today.

Please don't make me jealous by telling me you were able to get one of the pretty red ones that they don't sell any more, instead of one of the "meh" blue ones.
