Another newbie
Hi all. Another new guy. Engineer by degree, bicycle fanatic by choice, artist by design. Hope to be able to contribute something useful from Chicagoland.

Howdy and welcome to the forums, from another engineer down in Texas. :)

A female engineer here from CA.

If you're cute enough, you don't have to post anything useful here. :D

Dang, I'd better start hunting up some useful information to post.

Nah, just post a photo in the Men of Foo thread. :thumb:

Not quite sure if I'm cute enough. Did some modeling in my college years, but that's a while ago and more than a few crashes ;) A new toy that's not too demanding? Hmmmm, have to think on that one a bit!
The little tag that's stuck to me seems to be, 'Could be a subdermal hematoma. That, or, he could just be freakin NUTS.'. :)

Hi crossnut, what kind of bikes do you have? And if you are a fanatic, how many?

We would like to assure you that we consider all men of Foo to be hot :lol: , so don't fear posting a photo!

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.

Currently, I own an '08 Lemond Poprad Disc, a GT Peace 9R, and a Motobecane Fantom Cross Uno (bought as frame/fork/headset. Got whacked in a hit and run on the Bianchi Pista, so it's now sitting as a frame. Dislocated shoulder, 7 stitches to close the eyebrow and 72 more to reattach the right ear taught me to ALWAYS wear a HELMET... Sold my Merlin Cielo, as I'd built my 'dream bike' only to find that after investing many thousands of $, that I was afraid to ride the derned thang. Be careful what you wish for, I guess. Through my life I've run the gamut of every sort of bicycle. Looking to buy a Ti Dura Ace roadie soon (within the next 3 months), and a new, full-boing mtb if I think can trust myself on one again (I like to jump things...).
Men of Foo? I'm at a loss. What am I missing? :)
Thanks for the welcome! Seems to be a great place so far!
