    Another Newbie

    I would to say hello to everyone here and to let you know that I am very happy to be here. I now have a great forum to help my bicycle addictions. I am 51 years old and the roots of my addiction started in 1988 back when I was in the submarine service. Many years have passed since then and I have never outgrew my love of cycling. I live in Wash D.C. and it is a great cycling town, but I was truly spoiled in Southern CA where I live for 17 years. Since I work in goverment I will moving to Morocco next year and trying to prepare myself for it. I have posted 2 threads here and I was really surprised at all the responses I have received. So now I know that this is a very active community and look forward to share thoughts and ideas with all of you.

    Regards

    Nickbubblehead. (bubblehead is a slang term that the surface guys called submariners, they were always jealous that we go up and down!)

    WELCOME I reckon your having been in subs., you're no stranger to discomfort.
    I wonder if that comes into play regarding your bicycle fit.
