Hello.. again!

*blows dust off old avatar* PFFF... (cough,choke!)


..wow, looks like I have a lot of catching up to do after making the biggest mistake of my life and wandering away from cycling in general and MTB in particular for far too long! (whatdayamean 26" wheels are gone..??)


whelp, time to do some catching up.


Old member, used to collect vintage lightweights, been riding off road since '92, made some poor choices and got away from whats important in life (including cycling). screwed my head back on straight and came back, took up running. Realized I missed riding off road and thought I'd see if I could still hack it. Dusted off the old Klein and went on a soul-surfing tour over the summer of all the Ohio trails I've not seen in about 7 years. Something clicked on the first ride and it all came back... so it looks like I'll be shopping out my first NEW bike in over a decade.


so... hi! Its good to (finally...) be back!
