    New to the forum, time to say hi!

    Hello! A few years ago I moved to Northern California from the Mid-West and caught the road-bike bug. It's bad. This area is just so perfect for riding! Lately I've been getting REALLY into it as a way to get fit (not just save a buck on gas) and have been venturing into more and more challenging rides. I've started riding into the mountains a little more (from the Bay Area flat-lands) and am learning the value of good tires, good brakes, and good technique. Trolling in this forum, I see a lot of people like me and am looking forward to wasting some internet time here in the future!

    BTW, here's my (perhaps excessive) stable:

    Welcome!

    California is God's country for bike riding--you did well to move there.

    As far as the stable--when you get into the double digits, then you have a bike problem, IMO.
    "When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking."

    (Sir) Arthur Conan Doyle. Scientific American, January 18, 1896
