    Flatlander

    Basic intro:
    *66 yrs. old, male
    *Been riding 40 yrs., last 15 months in Fla.
    *Steel until now--looking to buy carbon, probably "endurance" frame to accommodate very odd build-short arms, long legs
    *Have had 2 custom steel frames-60 cm seat tube/56 cm top tube
    *Ride about 150-200 mi./week, mostly group rides these days
    *Looking to stay longer with the faster groups
    *Spend some time in the Colo. foothills

    Welcome to the Bikeforums, hammerinbb.
    There are 10 types of people in the world - the ones that can count in base 2, the ones that can't count in base 2, and the ones that didn't expect this to be in base 3.
