Greatings from Central Texas!

Hello everyone,

My name is Mark and I am currently in San Antonio, Texas. I am 33 years old. I have been riding on and off for a few years now. I am a barista at a local coffee shop and I am married of 7 years with two crazy and beautiful children. I have been lurking this site for a bit here and there trying to find more information about the bikes that I have (had).

The only bike that I own currently is this guy...



I do have my eyes set on either a Bianchi Pista or a Fairdale Parcer Express in the future. I like to get out in the evening times and early morning when it isn't too hot out and enjoy group rides. Hopefully this forum will be some motivation to go out and ride more.

I would like to eventually upgrade the seat and add some high output lights for night riding.

Thanks!!
