I've already tapped the immense pool o' cycling knowledge here (thanks tandemgeek!). So i ride three ways: mountain, road, and tandem. i just sold my trek pilot and purchased a "real" steel bianchi veloce. My mountain bike is a kona mokomoko, and i will be captaining a 15yr old burley duet. i'm lucky enough to have retired parents in Harbor Springs, which has great cycling routes. i enjoy the state parks in the detroit metro area for dirt riding.
