90's custom Marin, Bianchi Celeste, built up "beater" single speed
back on the seat, san diego, ca
Great forum, have been reading it for some time and just signed up finally.
My serious biking started with a custom Marin that a friend built up for me back in the early 90's when I lived in the Bay Area. I spent a lot of miles on that mostly around the Santa Cruz mountains for about a decade, then moved to San Diego and for some reason sort of left it sit. Then we got fat and lazy in office jobs. Turned that around in 2011; lost a bunch of weight and hit the outdoors.
My wife and I both got our bikes tuned up and started riding again, then decided that city riding is more our bag and have been enjoying it quite a bit.
I really dig these forums, they are a lot of fun. As an early adopter to the internet (and self-professed geek) I find it awesome to be able to tap into a bottomless resource for info.
What I got now - custom marin, beater built up SS, most recent road bike, CL find Bianchi that was not given enough time outside. I'm fixing that right now.
