    No, I don't know her. More's the shame, since I'm 51 and SINGLE! (Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more!) Hook me UP! ;)

    Hi

    I'm from Stockholm, Sweden and I've been cycling for a year now. I've just purchased a Tacx I-magic trainer so that I can train in the wintertime (oktober-april) and I'm looking for people who also have a trainer for some tips. Also, if any of you have tacx I magic then I might be interested in buying some courses from you.

    email me at: [email protected]

    Ahh, the Emerald Empire! I'm a UO alumnus, but I haven't been back to Eugene in, well, decades. In any case, I'll bet it's still one of the best biking cities on the continent.

    Get this kids: when I lived there, Eugene had two automobile bridges over the Willamette River, and THREE pedestrian/bike bridges. It's a great town.

    I'm from Melbourne Australia. I'm just getting back into cycling after a hiatus of a couple of years. I got into a tangle with a dog on a bike path :mad:. That put me off riding for quite a while.
    I used to do a bit of road riding about 15 years ago (on a Graecross), but I think that's behind me these days. I'm in the market for a hybrid bike, and will probably buy a Specialized Sirrus Sport very soon. I'm looking forward to getting back into it.

    I am from Scotland!

    I have an outstanding, innovative idea about Chainless Mechanism for a bike.
    Among many other features this bike can continue to go forward by reverse peddling! It is an ideal bike for acrobatics and also for pleasure.

    I have a prototype which proves the mechanism is very efficient.

    I would like to know who could manufacture a bike with such an aesthetically attractive mechanism. :)

    Look forward to hearing from any one! http://www.cyclingforums.com/images/icons/icon5.gif

    I'm a high school student from Ontario, Canada. I ride just about everyday 2-3 hours. Just got into the sport less than a year ago, and lovin it, Strict roadie! I've crashed many times, and crashed even last week (from a clutsy driver!), so trying to ride through the traumatization as much as possible. Just dying til the snow melts away for good down here, to start riding outdoors so i can get ma farmers tan :)

    I recently bought a hybrid/cross bike to replace the mountain bike that was stolen last year. I hadn't used the mountain bike in a while because it was heavy and uncomfortable to ride. So it was a blessing in disguise.

    This new bike is great. Besides joyriding, I've been commuting to work when the weather permits and it's been great. Besides the workout and viewing of daybreak each morning, I've discovered other benefits.

    Just this morning on the way to work, I happened to look down in time to notice a roll of postage stamps. They're worth $37. Now I need a penpal.

    Edited to answer the questions: I'm from Spartanburg, South Carolina. I work in maintenance at a metal stamping plant that makes beer kegs and parts for John Deere lawn mowers. How exciting!

    I am from Victoria, British Columbia (Canada) and am 35 years old. I have been a recreational rider for a number of years, am in the process of purchasing a new bike to ride more frequently and seriously. My decision has been made, and will be getting a Kona Jake the Snake (with road tires) in the next week or two. My riding will consist of commuting to and from work and weekend group road rides. And, maybe if I get ambitious dab in a race or two . . . but we'll see.

    I am looking forward to chatting with many people with the same interest in riding.

    Cheers, Ron

    I am from Menlo Park, CA, where I work at a bike shop. And I was hoping to get some information about a particular bike before I make the mistake of selling it, or selling incorrectly. I've acquried a Windsor Competition with all Suntour components. The date stamped on the Sunshine hub reads 11 76. This bike has maybe 5 miles total ride time. It is so clean and in near new condition that I'm afraid to even ride it. The chain has the original lube and all the teeth on the rings are still clean. Can anyone discuss this with me. Thanks, and I wish it wasn't raining. Dave
