Just discovered the board a few days ago; very captivating.

Anyway, just a smidgen about myself. I returned to biking in '94 after an umpteen-year layoff (traded my 20" Yamaha Moto-Bike in on a '74 Chevy Vega, cause how could I date on a bike?). In retrospect, I got the raw end of the deal...........oooh the hindsight! Got back in it to help quit the cigs; cut down, but not stopped yet. Garage is home to a couple of Schwinn hardtails, couple of ProFlexes, and a Meridian tandem.

Well, considering where you are, I'd imagine there are all kinds of social pressures to continue smoking. That your quitting is a mark of character. Good luck and welcome.
when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
