    Hello, from Maple Grove, MN.

    My name is Jim, and I just joined-up (Duh!). There were too many "Jim's" here, so the moniker is recycled from one I used to use on an audio site, and is based on a refrigeration term I use every day.

    I used to be an avid cycler "back in the day", but my when my Super LeTour was stolen in college I kinda gave it up. Fast forward 25 years, and here I am- just getting back into cycling.

    Right now all I have is a Specialized Crosstrail (hybrid), but I've gotten to the point where I ride about 100 miles/week (paved trails, alone and with groups), and I'm getting tired of that heavy thing. I'm giving serious consideration into moving up and buying a carbon road bike, so for the time being I'll just read, learn, and try to not to ask overly stupid questions!

    See you on the road!

    Jim

    Hi Jim!

    I'm the same moniker here as in the asylum.
