    From the Springs

    Hi from Colorado Springs,
    Iím a soon to be 52 yr old that rediscovered cycling about 7 months ago. The last time I rode was around 1973 when I got my driver license.

    I ride the trails around the springs on an entry level Bianchi Ruck that I bought at Bicycle Village around March or April of 09. I ride about 14 miles every weekday on the homestead trail which I can get to right out of my back door. On the weekends Iíll try to ride one of the open spaces or one of the many trails around the area and shoot for 30 to 40miles. Thankfully a good friend that rode competitively has been helping with some of the dos and doníts and techniques that help in singletrack mountain riding.

    Iíve upgraded many parts in the last month or so, SLX crank, XT series front and rear derailleur, shifters, wheels and hubs, 9speed cassette. Iíll get to the front fork and make a disk brake conversion in the spring.

    Just want to say hi and thanks to all the regular contributors. This place is just a wealth of info.
