Hi! Chris in Colorado, via CA & UK!

Hi everyone! Been lurking for, gosh, at least a decade. I'm a 38-year-old male, married with kids. Originally from Huntington Beach, California and East LA. Met my wife (who is from Wales) and moved out to England for 8 years, where my son was born and I re-discovered my love for cycling. After a short stint back in Huntington Beach, where my daughter was born, we finally settled in Fort Collins, Colorado, where we've been for the last about 7 years.

Fort Collins is a great cycling city. I can ride down to Boulder or up to Cheyenne, Wyoming. We, of course, have a lot of mountain trails and single track, but I have to admit I'm more of a gravel roadie who really just wants to ride for hours on-end.

I work on cars and trucks for fun, so naturally I built my own bikes when I got back into it. I'm a fan of riding fixed, single speed, and I also like my internal gear hubs. Not a lot of derralieur experience. (See, I can't even spell it right. : )
