I'm new to this board but I recognize a few names from another board that I used to really like but is getting a little overwrought ( I will leave it there).
I live in DC but was raised in upstate NY (Woodstock), not to far from "Devil's Kitchen" -- old guys like me will remember that from the Tour De Trump/Du Pont. I will be 40 very soon and have been road riding since 16. I rode competitively in college, got through grad school working as a bike courier in NYC then DC. I commute to and from work on a fixie. I own three other bikes but my pride is a Bridgestone RB-1, the holy grail of a retrogrouch (such as myself). I am currently shopping for another bike hope to get it soon.
