About me:
I started to ride a lot in the summer of 2002 and ride year round.

Hybrid Road Bike: Surly Cross-Check (2014) bought in Nov 2015, from Rapid Transit, which is now Cosmic Bikes. Black frame 56cm, w/a Brooks saddle, fenders, a rear rack, Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires.

Touring Road Bike: Jamis Aurora (2000) bought in Sept 2002 at Johnny Sprockets in Edgewater, which, aside from the crank, frame, handlebars, and fork has been entirely rebuilt -- with new wheels, tires, saddle, seat post, handlebar stem, wide drop handlebars, pedals, and accessories added -- pedal clips, rear rack, fenders, ding bell, bike computer.

Long Tail Cargo Bike: Kona Ute (2011) bought in Jan 2014 at a fire sale at Rapid Transit. Aluminum frame is relatively light compared to other similar Yuba, Surly models. New heavy duty kickstand essential addition, or the bike will tip over.

For about 8-9 years I rode a recumbent, a Bacchetta Giro 26. A neat ride and different sort of experience, but its maintenance costs were high.
My other websites (twitter, facebook, pinterest, Google+, blogs, etc.):
My first bike:
My first serious bike was a Miyata road touring bike; other bikes I've owned include a Schwinn Varsity and a Diamondback mountain bike.
