Aloha from California

I just dream of living in Hawaii. Maybe some day.

Mike from Union City. 41 y/o, male. I've riding since birth. We used to make little wood ramps for our old-old-school faux-bmx bikes. Sometimes parachutes made from old sheets since drag race was big back then. I started serious road biking about 14 on a pos 10 speed that was given to me. Switched over to mainly MTB at 18 and been doing that ever since.

Here's my main riding partner. She's training on single-track now and just yesterday worked on rocky, dry-creak crossings. She spent her birthday money on new shifter. The twist type are a good idea but are just too difficult to turn with her little hands so she can't get into the lowest or highest gears by herself.

My main ride:

Here's my project for commuting once my kids are back in school. Yes, it's a Free Spirit, it's heavy and I don't care. hahaha. Actually once all the components were removed it wasn't that awful. Going SS because I have no hills on my way to work and I want to put zero $$$ into this project. Some of you will hate this but I'm cutting the bars and turning them over to make fake-track bars. I might even just leave the multi speed on the back. It's not my intention to be a poser but I don't want to put $200 into a crappy frame. I'll clean it up and make it roll nice and that will work well for me.
