    I have 14 bicylces of all types in my 'quiver', and more in the barn!

    Hi, Kyotomike here... I've been cycling since the early seventies when I made it down the driveway without crashing on my black/yellow Huffy.

    Since then I've had a jillion bikes. Treks in Austin in the 80's-90's, a KHS MTB in Crested Butte in the 90's, lots of cruisers, and now three regular rides;

    - A Cannondale MTB that I use with a trailer to take the 5 yr old to school (but the headshok needs to be fixed so it's out of commission at the moment...)
    - A Bridgestone racing bike which I've painted black and converted into a fixie, it hums, I'll post pictures sometime.
    - My new favorite, a 1987 Lotus Legend -- What a ride! It loves to go fast and I see that there are some Lotus enthusiasts on this forum, so that's cool.

    My family:
    - Peugeot Colibri 18" for my wife Yuko and 16" for kid Juneau
    - Two other kids bikes for the other two boys
    - Another Cannondale (matching, how cute) for Yuko
    - ~6 guest bikes for our rental properties. (<www.suisenkyo.com>, www.sakarakyoto.com.)

    So that's me. Nice to meet you all. I live in Kyoto and have a place out in the countryside with a barn full of other rides in various states of disrepair: Mongoose, KHS, Specialized, Giant, Ridley, a couple of vintage frames, and so on. In the future I'd like to get a welder and make a couple of custom choppers like they have on atomiczombie.com

    Look forward to connecting with other two-wheel 'Otaku' (Japanese word for 'geek/enthusiast')

    Cheers Kyotomike, welcome to Bike Forums!

    Thanks for the very thorough introduction.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
