New from Illinois

Hey, I'm from Springfield, IL area and I'm currently going to school in Rolla, Mo. I've been casually riding bikes for my whole life. lol. Did some BMX as a kid and some road biking. I currently ride an Old Blue Cannondale Road Bike which I'm upgrading this summer. I'm not sure what year it is, but I'm working on finding that out. I got into biking a little more indepth this past year at school when I joined the Human Powered Vehicle Team at Missouri S&T. We make and race a recumbent Bicycle in two different competitions sponsered by ASME.

Sorry I don't know what you mean by Altbike... So I'm probably not. lol.

Here's the link to the teams website. http://web.mst.edu/~umrhpv/ There are a few photos from last year on there. We haven't gotten a chance to put up pictures from this years competition yet, but the bike is similar.

Here's a Photobucket account with pictures from this year too and that has some of the teams we competed against too. http://s285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/hpv_west_2008/

AltBikes means 'Alternative Bicycles'--usually for building bikes out of odd parts, tallbikes, etc.

Anyway, you have a big team roster, I was surprised to see how many people are participating.

9 months too late but Hello. I'm on the Rose-Hulman Team so I'll see you ast ASME in Philly (And Portland?) If you're still around.
East Hill- Former members (or at least the past presidents) are listed as well on their team list, although they do have an impressively large team.
I'm glad the photobucket account I started is being used.

Wonderbread, welcome! If you've not seen a tallbike, you need to go in there and look. They are crazy. Hey I seem to have many things in common here, Canondale, Springfield (ok, not IL) Rolla (I live S of it) Tell us more about the upgrade. Sounds interesting.
