    I am FROM the Texas hill country, a long, long time ago, but now I live in Coronado, CA, courtesy of the US Navy. I am a lawyer, real estate broker, and investment manager. I used to be a pro tuba player, and a stock broker, too.

    In real life, though, I was an age group triathlete in the late 70's and 80's until I was stopped by an extended case of persistent, chronic plantar fasciitis. That appears to be in remission now, thankfully, and I am just starting back up, getting a bike butt and some legs, etc.

    i live in Melbourne, Australia. I'm a student, and also work a (crappy) part time job. I do quite a bit of bike commuting, and also like to go for longer rides whenever I have enough spare time. I would like to do some touring in the near(ish) future, too. Cheers!

    My name is Rich and I live and work in Seminole Heights, Tampa FL 33603 USA. I currently don't have a bike but went shopping today for one. Rode a Giant Revive DX bike and it was the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden. I'm in to comfort these days.

    I am a Realtor and sell houses almost exclusively in my neighborhood of Southeast Seminole Heights, an inner city neighborhood of Tampa named 2003 USA Neighborhood of the Year because it is experiencing an awesome regentrification. I love my neighborhood and I want to experience it on a bike! Besides, I could use the exercise!!!

    Thanks,

    I apologize for taking so long to reply to your friendly email. I'm new to cyclingforum and new to this type of venue. It took me a while to realize that I had received communication.
    I've been in the Hill Country for 13 years now. I'm a Louisiana native, but been in Texas quite awhile. I'm here courtesy of a Baptist church. I'm a Baptist minister. I started cycling when I got here 13 years ago...mostly road biking/racing. But I'm 58 and have lost a little "zip", and I can't quite stay with the young bucks any more. So I'm considering a recumbent and a little more recreational riding.
    What kind of recubent do you ride?
    Doug

    From: Virginia, USA

    Living: Sales and Marketing for tech nuclear power generation related industry

    Ride: Mainly for recreation and exercise, about 10-12 miles a day during the week and 20-40 on the weekends. No aspirations to race or anything like that, just do it to not be fat. Seems to be working...

    Hi everybody
    I am a new member living in chessington in the UK
    I am trying to do up my old bike and wondered if any one can help me with my problem.
    I have replaced all the parts with shimano alivio front and rear mech and a Un72 bottom bracket 122mm.
    The original bottom bracket was a chinhaur with the markings CH52-68 122L BC137-24T.
    The problem is the front mech will not reach over the large chainring, I think I may have fitted the wrong size bottom bracket?
    The bike is an MTB giant boulder sports series and the original front mech was a suntour FD-TP16 and the rear mech a shimano altus and the crankset SR Suntour XR180.
    Has anyone have any suggestons.

    Many thanks
    Richard:confused:

    I don't ride an recumbent, Doug. I am riding an Eddy Merckx steel road frame from the mid-80's, just now completely refurbished with Campy Super Record, except the Look pedals, and Shimano brake levers (for now!). I use the term "riding" loosely as I just finished the refurbishment last week and have a grand total of about 3 miles on the bike. There will be a lot more in the weeks ahead.

    I have never tried a recumbent, but they scare me. Out here in Kalifornistan, with so many people hell-bent on living their irrepressibly irresponsible lifestyle, driving either drunk, whacked out on something or just plain not paying attention, the death rate for cyclists is appalling. Fortunately I have a bike path nearby that offers a much safer riding experience. Recumbents strike me as more dangerous since it is more difficult to see them. That's just my take; I have no idea if it is actually true in real life.

    I am a bit older than you (nearly 61). I also swim and am getting back into running. 20 years ago, I was an up and coming age group triathlete, but the plantar fasciitis put an end to that, and now I am 20 years older and nearly 100 lbs. heavier. It is still fun, though!

    Good luck!

    Where: South East Melbourne.

    New to Commuting to work 32kms per day.

    Ride: Shogun Mountain bike (not pretty for commuting) but I have put on 26"x1.25" slicks, clipless pedals and a rigid fork.

    Might get a flatbar road bike later down the track if I am still keen on riding.
