Have been commuting off and on since '71, first in Denver and now Wyoming. My favorite rides at this time are an 05 fuji track, 09 surly steamroller, currently with SA 3 speed, Brompton sl1 and a taiwanese dumpster bike w/studded snows for icy days. I like tinkering, rescuing bikes and fixing them up and giving them away for cost. Ride around 20 miles day Feb thru Nov, and sometimes only 6-8 when there is a lot of snow and ice or the wind is over 30 mph. I've been reading blogs for a year or so on this site, driven here largely in attempts to fool around with or fix my Brompton.
