I guess I should introduce myself to the forum:
My name is Mike. I am a 28 year old mechanical engineer working in R&D for a medical products company in London, Ontario, Canada.
I've recently gotten seriously into biking. As you can glean from my user name I used to compete in rowing. I'd been doing it for about 15 years non-stop (highschool, varsity in university, local clubs) and it was starting to get a bit stale so it was time for a change. Sold my boat and bought myself, and my wife, road bikes -- Cervelo Soloists for each of us. We're loving it so far. We wish it wasn't so darned flat around here but so be it...
Guess that'll do for now.
