Just getting back into biking in a large way after having to do 1,001 other things for 10+ years - like moving to Vermont from the madness that is Massachusetts. So first I bought a Trek FX hybrid for general motion. Now I'm upgrading my custom A-D Puch Inter 10 (? - no sticker/lettering - strange deal through Sheldon Brown's crew). Bought the frame back in 1982. Still as good as then. Fast as it gets and nimble - goes where I want without having to steer. Love that longish wheelbase and Reynolds 531. People can have their carbon whatsit's.
Vermont is made for bicycles and horses. Except for winter, it's the best. But if you're thinking of moving, beware: It's a seller's market here. No matter what national trends may say. My house has doubled in value in the last 10 years.
Catch you around the funny-farm.
