    Thanks - this looks like a really cool place. Do people ever hook up here for rides?

    We met once for a ride starting in snohomish. I'd setup another ride but I'm too busy for the next few weekends. Maybe after that, I'll set one up.

    I've been checking the forum out for the last month or so, now that I finally have my first road bike I feel like I belong.

    Born and raised in beautiful Bellingham.

    Kulshan is where I was convinced to buy the bike, after a couple test rides. I got it used over ebay, it came with clipless pedals and a low-end computer, so I figured it would save me convincing my wife I needed those things if it all came in one package!

    I did get my cleats and lock from Kulshan though, great store. I remember when I was little sitting in the store bored while my dad looked at mountain bike stuff.

    A 2006 Trek 1500. I absolutely love it! The other reason I went with the online purchase is that I am 6'6", and both Kulshan and the manufacturers were out of stock for my size for the year. I didn't really want to wait for the '08 to come out. The 63cm frame is huge! I was going to post a picture with my first post, but I couldn't get it to work.

    I believe that first posters are not allowed to do either links or photos because of past problems with spammers (porn was a serious problem for a while). You should be able to post a photo now.

    That is a huge frame! Mr. East Hill is 6'2", and I thought his bike was huge, but I think his is a 57cm Trek 4300, so smaller compared to yours. That makes sense for you to purchase online with your height, and being sold out. I think the LBS would understand...I know I would not want to wait that long.

    Right on. I used to work in the mall about 20 years ago and the Burger King across the street before that.
    Ol' Silverdale's changed a lot over the years.
    Nice to see someone from my neck of the woods on here.
    Welcome aboard.

    Redmond, WA (just do a map search for Microsoft and you'll find it)

    Information about the project, http://www.sitkaaoc.org/Projects/Bik...y/bicycle.html

    Link to Online Forum/Bulletin Board, http://www.sitkaaoc.org/Forum/index.php


    Hello,

    Just wanted to alert Bike Forums readers about a new project in Southeast Alaska. Sitka, Alaska, a community of 8,500 to 8,800 people on Baranof Island in rainy Southeast Alaska, is trying to get an application together for a Bicycle Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists. If our application is successful, we'll be the first Alaska community and the nation's smallest town to earn the designation. If you've ever bicycled in Sitka (maybe on tour) or if you have any expertise you can lend as we work on this application, please visit our forum and spread your knowledge. Our main contacts for this project are Matthew Turner of Sitka Advancing Our Community and SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Health Educator Doug Osborne. If you have expertise in the Bicycle Friendly Community application process, send me a message and I can put you in contact with them.

    I'm on the Sam. River Trail somewhere between 5:30am and 6:00am, from the NE 90th St. bridge to Wilmot Gateway Park. Tough to miss me: 250 pounds, full beard, old rigid frame Stumpie with fenders and a fork mounted headlight, sunshine yellow jersey and a black helmet with yellow scotchlite stripes all over it. (could I be more of a sterotype?)

    We should meet up at RedHook on the way home some evening.
