    second bike i actually got i purchased was a Tirreno 1000 from Performance....after about 200 miles or so i decided that it was to flexy...i weigh about 170ish and i am 5'9".....

    ...so i traded up for a 2007 Fuji Team pro!!! Love it...

    I commute almost 5 days a week and average about 140ish commuting and 50 training miles a week... looking to start racing Cat 5 crits here in a few months....

    um....what else...i do Search and Rescue for the Navy...ie. fly in helicopters and jump out....my big passion is anything on two wheels...motorcycles, MTBs or what ever!!

    See ya'll around....i'll be the slow guy gettin' droped by everyone!!
    Fuji love.

    I'm alfa63 (aka Steve) and live in Huntington Beach. I bought a road bike from the LBS in late February and do a mix of commuting to work (12 miles round trip) and weekend riding.

    I currently ride from HB to and from SART; I've also ridden on the San Gabriel River Trial but I find that trail a bit too bumpy; when my wife and I visit her mom in Oceanside, I ride out to PCH and down the coast.

    My longest ride was last Saturday at 46 miles and I've ridden in just one organized event (Tour de OC on April 21).

    Here's three pictures of my KHS Flite 220 (details here); the first picture has my 41 year old Alfa Romeo Giulia Super in the background; the second picture is the bike full of stuff; the third picture is at the Tour de OC.

    Welcome, Steve. When you say the Tour de OC - that's the Geared up for Abused Kids, yes?

    Great Steve. You'll find that after time, hanging out in this forum will lead you to longer, and more aggressive riding ... that is if you want that.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    Yes it is. The tour had 25, 55, and 100 mile routes... I did the 25 mile route.

    I rode the century back in 2005 but had to quit due to an asthma attack. Very nice folks who run that and the volunteers were outstanding.

    As you might be able to tell, I joined in February but have been reading to gain knowledge and have a good laugh as well (you people crack me up - it's kind of embarrassing to suddenly laugh out loud at work and wonder how many people heard me). I'm not sure how the heck I'm going to do a century but I'd like to (plus I'm almost halfway there).

    There's a century in August - Cool Breezes I think - that quite a few people have done as their first century and it seems to be a reasonable goal for me.

    I agree! Very organized, plenty to eat and drink, definitely a good experience.

    I'm Skypp from North Hollywood... before that... I was Skypp from Glassell Park... before that I was Skypp from Long Beach... before THAT I was Skypp from San Diego... do you see it? The northerly migration of Skypp?

    Anyway, I've been riding since I was out of high school... my first bike was a Nishiki Sport... the next bike was a Univega Gran Record (I miss that bike... sigh...) and then I rode a dusty ol' Peugot... I finally got high tech enough and I now own a Scattante CFR DBL. I know... an Orbea, or a Colnago, but it was the right price, for the right frame at the right time!

    I'm big Disneyland geek... and I work downtown for a major live theatrical organization.... and I love sushi... but not before a ride... that's kinda...umm... gross...

    Would I need a Presta or Schrader adaptor or something a little larger?

    Dave,

    GMR is Glendora Mountain Road. There are a couple of GMR rides coming up:

    Mon 5/28 Early Morning Ride

    Sat 6/2 M.E.'s Pity Party

    For a lexicon of BF slang, here's:
    Understanding the Insanity


    As for motivation, why not try joining the BF BikeJournal Challenge? SoCal BFers are currently battling a club from Texas and a club from England for the top spot. It's not aggro or anything, but it's fun and it's free. All you have to do is sign up, choose SoCal BikeForums are your main club and track your mileage. I find it great motivation, and some of our members have so many miles it's truly inspiring.

    Dave, this group gets together regularly for group rides. Join in... you won't regret it! I know what you mean about the motivation. The group rides definitely keep me motivated.
