Hello from Missouri
Been lurking about, reading posts for quite some time now and finally decided it was time to join the forums.
I'm a pretty avid rider and log, on average, between 150 and 200 miles a week between March and early December. When it gets cold, I spin on a trainer, but get still try to get outside as much as the weather will permit - which can be a crap shoot in Missouri.
My "everyday" ride is a '98 Cannondale Synapse and I'm interested in road bikes, particularly French rides for some reason. (Yes, I know Cannondale is not French.) My other regular ride is an '84 Peugeot P8 that I have really grown to love. I have a Peugeot PX10 and a Follis 072, both currently under restoration. I've also got a Fuji 25th Anniversary mountain bike (which is really more like a hybrid or city bike than a mountain bike when it comes right down to it) and that gets the miles when the weather turns crummy.
Glad to be part of the forums.
