Location: I now live with my wife in beautiful (and hilly) San Francisco.
Bikes: I have a 3 speed Mission Bicycle. What I mostly ride though is a fixed gear that I built myself. I also have a Raliegh MTB that I'm hoping to turn into an Xtracycle, and I'm saving money for a lynskey ti frame to build my dream fixie.
Hello from San Francisco
I really am an ex-messenger - ten years working in NY and SF, but I've been off the bike for a long time. What brought me back was my excitement over the challenge of riding and building fixed gear bicycles, especially riding here in SF. Right now I'm riding with a 65" gear, which gets me up about half of the hills I encounter. Most of my riding is commuting and just getting around town, but I want to try some longer rides too. I'm riding a bike I put together my self, but I'm hoping in the future to put together another one with a titanium frame. Anybody who wants to get together and ride in SF, let me know!
