    Hi there, I'm new

    Hello, I'm new to Bike Forums. I'm a ski nerd and former ski mechanic who is slowly falling in love with the summertime downhill rush of cycling. This forum seems to be a great resource. Thanks!

    I see that I'm supposed to say something about my bike, too. I have a Bianchi Volpe kitted out for touring. My second favorite part is the Supernova headlight and tail light. My favorite part is riding fast and stable downhill with a load on both the back and front racks!

    Also, I'm a longtime member over at the Teton Gravity Research (ski) forums. I post there under the same handle.

    Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums! More of a XC skier myself, the traditional parallel style at that. Yeah, I'm old.

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

    Plenty of young folks still XC ski! It has an elegant, lightweight simplicity. It's the single-speed bike of wintersports!
