I'm CW from the Seattle suburb of Lake Forest Park. I just tried out a Townie 21 spd, and found it refreshingly upright, and fast. Thought I'd introduce myself after lurking for opinions and such.
I grew up in Sequim, with a lot of different bikes to help get around since I was five. I'll always remember my first blue kid's cruiser bike with the silver glitter banana seat! It was run over though
My bikes are of the Kona ilk: '95 Fire Mountain, Metallic Dark Forest Green (stolen)
'96 Lava Dome, Metallic Orange
'99 *****, Banana Blue (so-o-o-o fast, my personal fave)
I'm mostly a commuter guy, with the occasional foray into local events such as Chilly Hilly or Haul Ash.
