Iím from Minnesota but have been living in Mexico for about 20 years. Besides cycling I also like hiking and body-boarding. Iíve been a bike nut since I was 15. I used to be really into touring, it was my life for a while. However, most of my biking comes in the form of commuting, and I do quite a bit of recreational riding. My everyday bike is a1992 Trek 520, a heavy-duty tourer which makes a great commuter, and is about the lightest thing you can ride on the bombed-out streets around here. I also have an Olmo racing bike thatís a little too small for me and has a crappy color. I just began a restoration project with my 1975 Motobecane Grand Jubile, my old high school sweetheart. Iím also looking for a 70ís era Raleigh International, for another sentimental vintage project. I always ride, but go in and out of techno-nerd phases. The restorations are turning me into a retro-nerd, and maybe itíll be worse this time because of the internetÖ.
