Intro o/

I posted in the general but since this sub-forum is my first click I wanted to post here too.

What do you ride? New to me from a friend, 2000 Klein Quantum upped to Ultegra (except for levers), Fizik Antares VS X.

How long have you been riding? Rode a ton as a kid, had a Schwinn 10sp and a beach cruiser, lived up on a hill. 89-2003 (glad there's a 50+ sub-forum lol) rode a ton of mtb mainly xc, did some xc racing in Big Bear and Mammoth.

Back in the saddle and lovin' it, doing 100+ per week so far. Glad to be here

Peace o/

JDW, welcome to the forums. You can see the bike info on my avatar but more specifically I ride each one of them whenever I'm not riding the Cannondale Criterium out on the fog line. How long? My first real bike was a '72 Motobecane Mirage I'd bought as a junior in high school with my busboy money. I was hooked forever.
