Hello From Bell, CA (SoCal) USA

Hi all.

I'm Allan, from Southern California.

I'm riding a far-from-exotic bike:
A K-Mart purchased, 26" Schwinn Mens Mirada MTB that has a durable (HEAVY) frame, the parts thereupon which I am upgrading/replacing/modding bit-by-bit, to suit my tastes and needs.

At this stage of the game, the bike will be a year-old 'round-abouts the third week of September, and it has seen more than two thousand miles of streets and bicycle paths in the interim. All of the stock, Chinese, parts seem to be cooperating together, to produce only a single area for me to be concerned with at any given time; so, by this time next year, everything should be new, except for the frame itself.

As it is, I've had a lot of fun, so far.

If any of you locals happen to be out during the day, riding the Rio Hondo bicycle trail, wave and say hello to the guy in the cowboy hat, being trailed by 2 or three teenagers.
