Hello, I have used this forum many times for excellent information and insight. There have been a few times where I wanted to offer something, but was too lazy to join.
Let's see... I'm a mechanical engineer and I enjoy bike maintenance and research almost as much as riding. I get in about 1000 miles a year usually in 10 to 50 mile chunks. But I want to increase this stat. I have four bikes: a 1992 titanium Greg Lemond (a copy of the one from his Tour Dupont race); a 1989 Miyata 312 (a basic bike I can take anywhere w/o fear of theft); a trek 4900 basic hard tail mountain bike; and a fixed gear bike that I built up last year (I originally started with a converted Univega 12 speed, but loved it so much that I decided to build a dedicated version with a track style frame). It has been a lot of fun.
I'm getting an error trying to load photos. Maybe I need to be a a computer.
