Hi, I am drlomo and I am a newbie here

Hi guys, I am an old Swedish dog who found out that cycling is my sport. I started with serious cycling three yrs ago, when I was 73. I like MTB but also tarmac, asphalt, cycling. I am a retired researcher on Space Power Systems. I held a position as a university professor. I worked a lot in the USA. Both at a university, WVU, and in a few private companies.
A little curiosity. I found you when I googled on bikes used in "Pacific Blue". I was curious about the electric bike the bad guys used in one episode.
So, here I am!

We got a couple of Swedes on the Forum. And could use more = Welcome.

we're the same age, but I've never been to Sweden.

Good to have a septuagenarian join the forum. I am 71 and discovered cycling was for me a long time ago. That has become even more true with more free time in my older years, including learning the mechanics aspect. When I started that endeavor, it opened up a whole other aspect to my 2 wheeled world. Enjoy the ride.

One of your countrymen hangs in C&V. He has quite the collection of immaculate collectibles.
