    Hello from Reno

    I started riding again the summer of 2012 with a Specialized Hard Rock MTB I picked up at a thrift store for $75. I put about the same amount into it and lost 30lbs over the summer of 2013.
    Since then (thanks to ebay) I've added a 2011 Specialized Sirrus Hybrid, 2005 Specialized Allez compact frame road bike, and a 2002 Allez to the stable.
    I'm semi-retired with a new career as an Author-Publisher with eight books (fiction) published online. I've lost a total of 61 lbs riding (18 of those twice). Good exercise for a fat ol' guy of 68. I do most of my own maintenance too, with the assistance of the wonderful people at Kawanis Club bicycle shop in Reno, NV.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

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