exchef intro


my name's Bill and I'm a freak. I'm old enough to lie about my age (or maybe not), i.e. I turned officially middle aged this past spring. I've been riding for fun and transport since the Ford administration. I grew up on a hill in Oregon, but I've lived most of the last 19 yrs. in flat Chicago.

After better than a decade worth of beaters I got a decent mountain bike a few yrs. back. Tricked out w/slicks and bar extensions it's not a bad city bike, but my wife needed a ride and isn't so into speed and quickness as I, so last spring I rehabbed an abandonded basement bike, which is actually quite nice. (Raleigh Marathon) Then, midlife crisis impending, I converted it to a fix, added moustache bars, and now it's Rosinante the recycled raleigh, or My Midlife Masher.

Anyway, that's me.

Hiya exchef, and welcome to the forums
No matter how fast I'm going, I'm in no hurry.
there are no bicycles in the valley, the only bicycle you find in the valley is the bicycle you ride down there.
Ride in the front, this space is available to anyone that wishes to take it-jjmolyet
