Been lurking for way too long...
I live in the southern 'burbs of the Twin Cities. Been riding casually for a couple years on the road, mainly to get the legs in better shape for the winter sports season, until recently running my first tri. I have a neighbor who rides for a LBS team who's talking me into trying road and cross racing next season just for fun, and I'm going to pretend to train through the winter and sign up for a few spring races to get my feet wet.
I came here for information when I bought my first "real" roadie, and wound up with some entertainment instead. Haven't deleted the bookmark from my morning online routine.
I haven't worn flip flops on a cervelo, I'm building a fixie for fun and I don't wear girl pants, I found RyanF to be humorous but taking up too much space, and pcad's attempts at humor actually make me smile from time to time.
