    Hi, I used to ride a Carlton in the 70's, I now have a 1987 LeMond Zurich and have done 4000Km since mid Feb 2007, including a number of races in the lower older grades. The LeMond has needed quite a lot of engineering to get it running nicely. From time to time I have been a race marshal for the top grade racing in Christchurch NZ. Alex.:)

    Haven't ridden a bike in 10 years, but I can't wait to get my first road bike and hit the streets!

    I'm a wine distributor from Chapel Hill, NC. I live on Dairyland Road, the "mecca" for road biking in this area... lots of rolling hills and beautiful farmland. Just got my first roadie 2 months ago after falling in love with MTB a couple of years ago. I like both a great deal, tho-- just for different reasons.

    Another TarHeel as well. Right here in central NC. More rolling hills than anything else. Going down them is a real treat however can't say much for the upside. I tuned fifty and gave up running for cycling ----- can't see why I didn't transition much sooner.

    What do I do? Fix broken people ----- :) Lp

    Do you want to ride road, or off-road? Paved trails are everywhere in the twin cities. There are singletracks in Eagan, Burnsville, Fort Snelling, Theo Wirth Park, and The MN River Bottom. A good road ride is the grand rounds, in Minneapolis.

    I'm originally from Australia & I used to be a research Materials Scientist. But now I live in Tenerife, which is the world's 3rd largest island volcano. This a a place with no flat roads to speak of and 2300m/7000ft climbs from sea level!

    Precisely two years ago I started a new webpage www.Tenerife-Training.net and offer pro bike hire on this magnificent island.

    My new life has not been easy. I have had to learn Spanish and adapt to the local culture... I hope you can stop by and take a look + sign my guestbook. :D

    My wife and I are retired and travel full time in a motorhome. We are presently in Mexico and I ride 10-12 miles most days of the week over every type of road imaginable. Lately my Trek w/Shimano 200GS derailer has been shifting erratically and I need to know the procedure for ALL the adjustments. Last year I had the shifters changed from lever/thumb actuation to rotary actuation; any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
