Bikes: they are so frankensteined it's hard to say, but one is an IRO Angus frame & fork, the other is a Fuji Track 2006 frame. everything else is constantly changing.

Hi Everyone from Phila

Hello from Philly, the city where I first learned to ride a bike 2 years ago this June 29th (yes, I know the anniversary). Now I feel at ease and never better! I hope BikeForums treats me well

is it considered adult re-learning if you only rode a bike once when you were nine and wiped out so badly you swore off bikes forever?

yes, yes it is.

i've got a brittle bone disease (osteo genesis imperfecta) which, thank god, in my case isn't as severe in adulthood (i'm 33 in december) as it was in childhood. i think i last rode my huffy singlespeed when i was in 5th grade or thereabouts...

didn't get back on a bike until last august. even had to spend a couple of hours in an empty lot just to learn how to start up without falling sideways or backwards.

my most recent accomplishment is a 45+ mile trek out to phoenixville.
on a 20" 3-speed.
