New from VA

I've been riding seriously since '85 but hadn't participated in any forums except as the occasional lurker. Tried racing but just didn't have the pain tolerance.
I ride with friends mostly - 19-21 mph group rides. Very hill here in Charlottesville - great rides up in the Blue Ridge Mountains (but not very fast!)
I ride a Merlin Extralight - frame is about 20 years old but I've upgraded the components over the years - now with SRAM Red and Williams wheels.
Also ride (but less so) a custom made Paisley (terrific local builder) - Reynolds 853 steel frame - a great bike but a few lbs heavier.
Anyway, it's good to be here.
