Rode a lot back in the 80's, then inexplicably quit for 15 years. Got started again when my wife bought me a bike for my 50th birthday 11 years ago. One more thing to love her for!!

Now its my best (and only) retreat, therapy, exercise, relaxation, contemplation, and solitude.

Ride way less, Grandpa way more. What a joy!

Upgraded to Campy Chorus 11 speed compact in February of 2010. Also had it painted. New pictures soon.

Cyclocross Road bike
Description:  Sold the Gary Fisher Mendota and bought this cross bike (used on eBay). Loads of fun on the gravel roads and paths around Boulder. Changed the brakes to Avid Shorty and added in-line levers. Sram Rival compact drivetrain.

Reluctantly sold this beauty 9/17/2010. With minimal time for riding, it's hard to justify 3 bikes.

Lifetime Odometer: 100.1 miles

Single Speed Road bike

Jan. 2009 Update: I had the frame repaired, repainted and built it back up as this fine single speed. Sweet!

I wasn't using this so I sold it March 25, 2010. Down to three bikes.
