Yes, this is me.

New to the forum but have been biking on and off for a few years.

Currently have an 08 Trek 4500.
I used to take it out to the trails but as I'm getting older the prospect of running head on into trees is less enticing.

Welcome to Bike Forums. How old is old? I'm 72 and haven't hit a tree yet. If you're 50 or older stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers.
Have fun.

I'm in my 40's ..... but was put away wet.



You've not lived until you've experienced an abrupt embrace with a pine tree.... and some handle bars mixed in there.

Thanks for having me.

Not too many dents in my face ... but there are a few.
