Hey everyone --

I typed out a long introduction, but it was eaten by my computer and I can't seem to get it back. Regardless, I'm Brendon.

I live in Southern Ohio near Athens/OU and have been riding bikes in one form or another for as long as I can remember. I'm 28 now and still love riding just as much as I did at 8. I enjoy everything from BMX to commuting, singletrack to triathlon, so there isn't much that I'm not interested in trying.

Currently, I'm riding a Motobecane Vent Noir for road/commuting and sprint/olympic triathlons. I also acquired a 97 GT Tequesta back in the spring and have been working on getting it back into the shape it should be. I just spent most of my evening replacing the riser bar with a flat and changing out the Franken-shifters. The P.O. had kept the Shimano trigger shift on one side and put a SRAM grip on the other for some reason. It's also had little changes - seat and pedals, etc. - but it is in really good shape.

We also have two mountain bikes we bought back in college - a Schwinn and a generic (I can't remember the brand) - and a 20" BMX style that my son was given earlier this summer.

I'm kind of hoping to find a 20" dirt jumper for myself next summer -- I sold a Specialized Fatboy ten years ago when I moved to college -- kicking myself for that one now because I miss it.

Any way, here I am!

Welcome Brendan. Seems like everyone could kick themselves for something they did in the past. Don't worry about it. You'll make up for it. Enjoy the forum.
