    Another noob on the dogpile... Houma, LA

    Greets! I'm Jeff, from southern Louisiana (Cajun country). Near Houma, for those of you in the area. I am already suffering from internet-forum-itis, and just when I thought I was in recovery, I stumbled across bikeforums.net.

    Gee, thanks...

    Anyway, I was going to just lurk and not contribute, but I saw the extensive subforums here, and I have interests in several: Commuting, Long Distance, Clydesdales (barely), choppers/freakbikes, Mechanics, Lighting, Utility, etc. etc. etc...

    So I decided to add yet another stop on my e-hangout list. Here's some shots of my steeds:

    An OCC Stingray, rescued from the trash. I smoothed the frame, built 24" and 26" wheels for it. Rear has a Sturmey XRD8 drum 8-speed hub, laced in a crow's foot pattern. I recently rode this bike 115 miles in an MS tour.




    Also I am trying to sell my car (a supercharged Saturn Ion) to live within my means... and will therefore start commuting to work by bike. I have a fairly cheap Schwinn aluminum hardtail MTB I am converting for commuting duty. I've put a rack, and Kenda Kwest 1.5" tires on the bike since this picture. I'll probably be upgrading to dynamo lights and panniers once I sell the car. But hey, that's why I'm here! Moral support. If I go without a car long enough, I'll spring for an Xtracycle Free Radical to haul stuff in. With $500 extra a month, it won't take long to save up for it.



    Personally, I'm a goofy, wacky guy. I'm a musician, father of 4, a homeschooler, mechanic, computer tech, etc. etc.

    So anybody from the area, holler back! I feel like I'm the only one out here that isn't the stereotypical roadie...

    Welcome FunkyStickman !! You seem likeable enough already, perhaps a bit too conventional.
