    Hi, my name is Brandon, and I'm an addict.....

    I'm totally addicted to cycling! It's been over 22 years since I was on a road bike. I got a new bike in late January and am loving it. I've got over 400 miles on it so far and am so stoked to be riding again. Went out of town for work the last few days, and took my ride hoping to break away and was able to get a couple rides in. My bike is so much fun to ride that I'll be bringing it with me for work many more times. here is a pic I took while cruising the local area.







    I had to share my new found love.

    How does riding your bike make you feel?

    That saddle you have is also on my '86 Masi. Where did you get one like that? Mine squeaks like a bird chirping.

    It's actually a Specialized Toupe. Changed out the stock saddle almost immediately after I bought the bike.

    But what if there's a lot of hills where he rides? Or maybe he likes it that way? Or what if... Nevermind...

    I find it to be a very comfortable saddle though the noise drives me absolutely bonkers. And the best saddles by far are Selle San Marco Regals but I'm not paying $200 for a bicycle saddle.

    Y'know, there might be a 12 step program for you somewhere.
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    It is level actually, the bike is leaning over a bit in the picture.

    Akirasho - I think you need a really good pal although I'm too tall at 6'4" to "borrow" a bike every now and again.

    Thanks! I love my Masi. Colnago's are beautiful, but far too much for me to even dream about.
