Hi from the Pacific Northwest!
I'm EL from the Seattle suburb of Mill Creek.. I am an avid roadie with a mild fetish for high end pro bikes and gear. Just love to dabble in the realm of esoteric exotic bike components and "serious" professional level bicycles. Love the vintage stuff as well as modern state of art "bike jewelry". You know what I mean!
Carbon bling, Campagnolo, unobtainium (stuff most people can't get their hands on). I was an East Coast kid. Grew up in the concrete canyons of the Big Apple. Got tired of the fast track life, moved to the Seattle area about 10 years ago. Got to unwind and developed the "laid back" lifestyle.
I have owned many bikes in my life time. Fuji, Masi, Cinelli, Guerciotti, and many more. Currently ride an Eddy Merckx Race with a Campy Record 10 Gruppo. Nice ride. Gets me from here to there fairly quickly.
I have been meaning to join the Cascade Bicycle Club, but have not gotten around to it yet.
Love to talk (chat) shop with technical minded roadies who have an appreciation for the higher end bicycles. Love Italian Japanese, English, and American hand-made bikes, both vintage and modern.
I consider myself an "armchair" cyclist. Love to talk the talk, but unfortunately rarely get to do any serious riding. What a shame. I wonder if high end bicycles make for interesting wall art?
Well, take care for now.
