you knew it had to happen...

since we haven't had a "who are you" post in awhile, and it seems the old one may be gone/not easily accessible, and it's fun anyhow, and we have some new folks, and, and, and....

* age
* geographic location
* occupation
* main ride
* words to live by
* anything else fun (careful, M.I.T.)

    geographic location: Clear Lake, Texas south of Houston

    occupation: Lan Administrator

    main ride: for now, a Trek 2200 w/upgrades. Considering Colnago CT1, Ciocc EOM Carbon, or Coppi Foco (hmmm, all Italian bikes starting with "C"?).

    words to live by: "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

    anything else fun: Now that I'm back into riding, what else is there? Music, reading, surfing, occasional saltwater fishing, and most of all spending time with my wife and family.

    Falling is not all that bad. It's a lot like flying only you don't have to flap your arms. It's the landing that sucks. (I read that somewhere back in the climbing days, found it funny but true).

    I am trying to break 3 hours on a metric century; 3:34, 3:18 (chain broke, grrr), 3:20, 3:13, 3:04 (bad leg cramps, I think it was only 58mi), so far. Lots of hills around here so don't kill me with laughter on those times.

    Foco, right? Your set-up is pretty similar to mine. I had an AmClassic seat post, but I recently swapped it out for the new Thomson that I recently put in my back-up bike. I had some creaking with the AC/Flite combo that wouldn't go away. The Thomson has been completely silent. Let me know how you like the Carve rear-end. I'm not usually one to make predictions, but I'll go out on a limb and predict that your going to love the Strong. Tell Carl I said hey.

    Yes, foco. I vaccilated a lot before getting the Carve. I have 2 concerns:

    * The longevity of the bonding process (does anyone know how long these things will last?)

    * Is there really going to be a performance increase? About as close as I can get is "it depends on the frame". Some people rave about carbon on certain frames, but on other frames it doesn't seem add an appreciable difference.

    As far as liking the bike, for the last month I've been riding a 1983 Fuji touring bike (I crashed my Bianchi Veloce, which was my rationale for getting the Strong). Just going back to index shifting will be a treat. I put the Fuji on a scale at a local LBS and with a loaded tool bag it weighs 29+ lbs. It's also getting a little long in the tooth structurally: It reminds me of driving a 1960's MG - "willowy" would be the polite term "a wet noodle" would be less kind. (I can't speak ill of this bike, though. It was my first bike as an adult cyclist).

    In any case, I'm sure the Strong will be a big improvement. Hopefully I'll get it by the end of next week.
    Sep 7, 2001 8:32 PM
    I thought about the Carve and then figured it's kind of like laser eye surgery. I'll let others experiment. If it works out in the long-run, maybe I'll jump on the bandwagon. Seriously, though, you're in good hands with Strong. From all I've heard, he's got a great track record on customer service. If you have any problems with it, I'm sure he'll treat you right. The waiting must hurt.
