Howdy doo all, I'm Tim from northwest Illinois. I'm 47, with a beautiful wife, and 2 great boys, 15 & 5. Yep that's right I said 5! Dude still had it goin on at least 5 years ago!!!! Anyhoo, I was having some hip problems and doc said to try riding a bike. Got out the old Huffy I bought at the px in Germany 20 years ago and the hip pain was gone asap. The old wrist pain, back pain, @$$ pain showed up immediately! Went over to Arnolds bike shop and test rode an EZ 1, bought it, love it! We have some great trails here along the Mississippi river and I can't wait to ride them all. My 5 year old likes to ride with me every day after school, he went 6 miles yesterday! Kinda cute on his little 1 speed yardsale special and he loves to ride. I enjoy reading all the posts here. This forum made me decide to check out the bents. I thank you all and hope to see you on the trail!
