Real Name: Tom

Where do you live: Colorado, just outside Boulder

Forum handle: I love Boulder County biking

Age: 68

How did you find Paceline: Can't remember. I've been reading it (lurking) since I bought my first Serotta in 2001, and it was the Serotta Forum. Now I'm a new participant.

What's in your stable: Serotta Concours, Serotta Colorado lll, Seven Axiom SL, Waterford RS 22, Raleigh Competition GS

How many miles riding last year: 5453 miles

Additional question: What is the class you have taken that you have enjoyed them most? Answer: the Barnett Bicycle Institute Repair and Overhaul Course

Something fun (not really fun, just a story) : I was riding into Denver about 30 years ago on a four-lane busy street. Suddenly a German Shepherd escaped his pen and, from across the four lanes, he made a bee-line for me, with the intent to kill; no barking, just ears-back, teeth-bared blinding rage and speed. I sped up, but I knew he had the angle and speed on me. Suddenly I heard, [I]thump, thump[I] followed by a piercing cry. I looked around, and he had been hit by a car; he died within minutes. The man who hit him said it was an accident, but that I was extremely lucky it happened. Sad that he died, but at that moment, I was very grateful.

*Real Name: Patrick

*Where do you live? Houston

*Explanation of your forum handle: It's a gamertag I use. It's sort become my handle on everything. I don't really have a solid answer as to why it is what it is, but it is.

*Explanation of your avatar: I guess I oughta get one of those.

*Age (General or specific): I'm 23

*Occupation: Bike mechanic / Student

*How did you find the Paceline? One of the guys at the shop I work at is on here a lot. Figured it was worth checking out.

*Favorite Bike: That's really hard. I've got an Anchor NJS bike that I'm awfully proud of, though.

*What’s in your stable?
My Anchor, obviously.
An All-City Thunderdome
A Bianchi Pista that I use for class and locking up around town.
Cinelli Experience for srs rides
Cinelli Mash SSCX for gettin' rad
and an 80's Bianchi Brava that I put some Nitto Bosco's on for lazy day comfort.
I'll end up posting pictures of all these things soon I'm sure.

*Fastest speed on your bike? Where? When? Pretty fast, I imagine. I ride a lot but I'm not always clocking it. No garmin, no rules or whatever. haha.

*How many miles did you ride last year? probably like 3-4,000

*Picture of yourself, your ride, or both together: I'll edit this in. hang tight.

*Tell us something fun: I took a trip to Portland 2 years ago to attend some classes at UBI, if y'all are familiar. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had and it really helped get me as into bikes as I am. Plus I get to tell people I'm a certified mechanic now, which definitely hasn't hurt me with finding jobs turning wrenches.
Anyway, if anyone here is thinking about taking a trip to UBI I'd be happy to answer any questions about it. Nice to meet y'all. This just feels like the start of something beautiful.

Okay sorry.

Editing it in totally failed me, so here is my cross bike. I'm feeling a bit wistful for the trail lately, Houston has been flooded out for a good 2 months. All of my local trails are kayaking routes for now.

I just joined up on Sunday. My odd user name is a conglomeration of the job I used to have, a job, I hated. You can figure that the S in the name stands for "sucks", and you'd be right. My name is Rick, and I live in southeastern Va. There are no mountains, here, just mostly flat land, but I can ride about 20 miles and hit some pretty hilly portions in surrounding counties. I ride a Titanium Lemond Tete De Course. I own a Bike Friday Pocket Rocket, a Trek 1400, and a Fuji mountain bike. I am mainly a long distance rider and have done many long distance endurance events. I am retired, and at the age of 69, I have gotten a little slower on the bike, but I still have fire left in my legs, and I refuse to give up and sit on the couch for the rest of my life. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of myself, but if I did, you would see a skinny old man.
