Hello from Pensacola

Greetings all,

I've been lurking for a few weeks here and thought I would post an intro. I'm a 55 year old male who has been away from bikes for a while, but getting back into riding. I'm in the process of converting my MTB (93 Giant Sedona ATX) to a city bike. Over the years, I've upgraded components - the latest being an Albatross handlebar, a rear rack, and a Brooks Champion Flyer saddle. I;m getting ready to replace the RapidFire shifters with Shimano bar end so that I can fully utilize the bar.

Iv'e found this forum to be a great source of information and look forward to participating in the future.

Regards
Ken

Hi Ken! Are you turning the bike into a commuter, then?

Hi Ken and welcome.
55? Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the "old timers".
And while you're at it, stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals.

East Hill,

Yes, that's my goal - kind of a commuter/town/fun bike if you will.

I can't help noticing your username - "East Hill" is the name of one of nicer old neighborhoods here in Pensacola.

regards
Ken

I've been told that before! I have been promised photos, eventually . My username stems from the fact that I live on the East Hill of Kent, Washington.
