Just wanted to say hello to everyone out there. These forums have been great to me and I look forward to contributing back to them in the future. I've been bicycling serious now for 2 years but have had a passion for riding my entire life. I currently would categorize myself as a touring guy. I decided racing just wasn't my thing. In the next year I am planning to ride the Northern Tier route with my wife. I currently ride a 2004 Fuji touring , 2006 Speciallized Allez, and a 2000 Speciallized Expedition FSR. My wife only has a 1993 Schwinn 434 but I am currently shopping for a vintage touring rig as we speak. I look forward to now being a part of the community. I'll leave you with a shot of my Fuji.
