    New to the Forum

    Just thought I'd drop in and say hi. I've been cycling for about 5 years and it took hold as an obssesion after about the first 2 months. I ride road mostly, looking to maybe get a mtn bike soon. I currently own 3 roadies, was up to 5 but had to sell 2 of them - they werent' getting the work that they deserved - so I sold them to some newbies so that they could get the enjoyment that I had with the bikes. The stable consists of:

    2002 Pinarello Surprise w/ Chorus
    1999 Raleigh R-700 w/Ultegra
    1998 Marin Verona w/Mirage

    Looking to get a TT bike, probably not till next year though, buying the Pinarello hurt the pocketbook some .

    I live in Northern Virginia, get lots of miles on the W&OD trail as well as in rural Loudoun County - lots of nice hills to test the legs.

    Wow! That's an impressive line-up of bikes! I got a new fork, and I think that's the best thing since sliced cheese...

    Thanks for the welcome - regarding the bikes, obsession makes you do strange things

    Welcome (again ) to BF.

    And my wife has a hard time understanding why I need two bikes.
    Of course I'm always looking to add a third.
