Greetings forum and please forgive me. I have been a member since 1/13 and did not notice this thread. Because of that I have failed to introduce myself. My name is Brian and I am a 43 year old newbie returning to cycling after a long layoff. I live in Mercer County New Jersey and have enjoyed these forums very much and have learned quite a bit during my search for new gear, and I have appreciated every word. I wish to thank all of the contributors to my peresonal threads and I welcome any correspondence from any of you.
