I am The Fixer and I mostly ride through the streets of Echo Park, Silverlake, Hollywood, Los Felix, Pasadena, and the San Gabriel Valley. My usual ride from home loop is up through Griffith Park, to the observatory, and back down the other side. I do this loop at least once a week. Thanks.

Heya Everyone, My name is James i am a student locomotive engineer, been with the railroad about 2 ½ years. I decided to cut and run from being an emt and ended up there. I currently reside in Brea, after living in the mountains of San Bernardino with my parents for almost 20 years. I recently started seriously riding the past few months, I currently ride a Felt f80. Most of my rides are whatever I feel like at the current time, although most are either through carbon canyon or up brea canyon. I promise a picture soon enough.

hmm 13th page... maybe this isnt so good =P

Welcome James! I'm superstitious about 13 too, so to make you feel better, I'll post here as well. We'll "split" the bad luck.

Switch to 30 posts/page (very convenient for the ultra-long threads) and you're at the top of page 11 instead.

i am billy and i used to ride raod bikes with my grandpa when i was younger then i got into skateboarding and then kickboxing and i think i have come full circle back to the bike. i like to lift weights, play music and ride a bike. i just got a mtb and i ride on the streets around my house (la sierra area of riverside) very early in the morning mostly (need some slicks) but someday i will have a roadie to do that with. i try to make it out to trails on the weekends.

I'm Stephen and just started reading these forums. I work in Buena Park and live in Cypress and have been using my Cannondale F500 for commuting since I smashed up my car a couple months ago and found I have no desire to fix it or buy something else. I've also been riding Coyote Creek, SART and the San Gabriel River Trail on the weekends and a couple days during the week. Here's a pic of the 97(ish) F500 commuter and I just won a 90 vintage Cannondale Black Lightning last night on ebay. Guess I'm going back to my roots as a roadie.

Welcome Devilinblack and Oleanshoebox! By the way, you have to find the thread that asks you to explain your name. I'm curious for both of yours!

Well...I took a wild guess! Performance calls that location as "North Torrance". I've never heard of a section of Torrance referred to as "North" before....
