    Greetings from Berkeley.

    Hola Bike forums,

    I have been riding a bike from the time I was a teenager mostly for pleasure or to commute. I currently ride a Specialized Crosstrail everyday to work, to pick my son up from pre-school, to the pub, and to the grocery store.

    I miss my two tone burnt orange and blue 3 speed (complete with banana seat and big gear shift on the top tube) from my youth, if only because I would like to give it to my son.

    If my other hobbies did not involve going to the mountains, I would not own a car.

    I wear a helmet, complete with front and rear lights mounted to it and am considering mounting one those little round rear view mirrors, if only to make me look a little more geeky. And am seriously considering clip-less pedals. I might build a fixie someday, but I really like multiple gears.

    I slow down for stop signs and actually stop for cars, if it's their turn, erring on the side of caution when pulling my son around. While riding around myself I respect motorists, if they respect me.

    Excited to be part of the community, getting some good advice, giving it when I can and looking forward to many a good discussion.

    Cheers!

    Mike
