FIrst started riding sometime in middle school, i don't remember exactly when or how. I think it may have began when I picked up an old issue of MOuntain Bike magazine. I've been riding ever since. I used to do a lot of mountain biking up by the Marin Headlands, Mt. Tam and the Presideo, but i've been riding road for the past few years. I currenty own about 6 bikes, the only ones that aren't junk are my custom Taylor road, a kona kiluea mtb, and a pre '96 yeti fro. I'm about to head off to college next year (not sure where yet), and i'm in the market to pick up a track bike.
