I'm Matt from western NC, and I just reregistered for bikeforums.net. After seeing I was from NC, another member suggested I say hello here. Have been a "serious" ;-) road rider for about 10 years.
Also, here are the bikes which currently own me:
2006 Fuji Roubaix
1996 Schwinn Le Tour
1970s Motobecane frame converted to fixed gear/singlespeed
2009 Schwinn road hybrid (from Walmart)
I'm always intrigued/amazed by how cycling can change your perspective... (almost always for the better...)
