    Greetings from Missouri!

    Hello everyone!

    (And just in case you were wondering, it's pronounced "Missour-ee", not "Missour-uh.")

    p.s. I really enjoy the emoticons on this forum. Too funny!

    Thanks!

    I ride a 1987 Fuji Sagres, recently purchased.
    Used to have a 1996 Raleigh R500 but I had to sell it last spring to pay for school. (I am a college student.)

    I ride the gorgeous highways of northeastern MO. I am looking for an indoor trainer with which to ride in my living room this winter.
    And I have completed 1 triathlon. And with my new lovely roadbike I hope to complete many more.

    I am excited about this forum! The internet has made so many things possible nowadays. I think the open sharing of knowledge and creativity in forums like this one bodes well for the future of humanity.

    And pardon the excesive emoticons. Since this isn't a "serious" forum I couldn't resist the opportunity.

    One thing about being close to a big city is the proximity of bike shops. I definitely envy you that! :-)

    Wow- A Fuji Sagres!!

    Wow - a Fuji Sagres!! I bought mine at the bike shop in Marthasville ( off the Katy Trail) 10 years ago. I still ride it along with my other two bikes. I consider my Sagres as my Cadillac- GREAT ride. Mine's a 1998 model. Hope you get many years out of yours as I will get out of mine. I'm having it's first major tune up next month so I can ride it from Little Rock up to St. Louis next summer.

    That'll be a fun ride! Is it a particular event or just for fun?

    It's no event ride...I live in Central Arkansas & I will ride from the Little Rock area east to West Memphis & ride the Mississippi River Trail north to St. Louis to visit my children.

    Let me know when you're doing this (if still) maybe I can ride along with you for a while. SE MO here!

    [QUOTE=AlbaSurf;9972668]Hello everyone!

    (And just in case you were wondering, it's pronounced "Missour-ee", not "Missour-uh.")

    QUOTE]
    I'm from Poplar Bluff, a small town in Southeast Missouri. I can totally appreciate your pointing out how to pronounce MO! I'm a big believer in ee vs. uh (not that I would correct anyone seriously) I'm also a newbie to BF...but by now, you're probably not so new.
