But I love steel frames, friction shifting and bicycle touring. My name is Jayme, I live in Long Beach, California and I'm a full time bicycle commuter. My boyfriend and I are car free and do anything and everything by bike and/or train. We grocery shop, go to the movies, go to family functions and vacation all by 2 wheels. I have a small business called Bike Burrito (bicycle tool rolls), I like to restore furniture, I love making sad things happy again. I recently restored a 1980 Univega Mixte into my dream bicycle, she's a beauty. I recently bought a Brompton M6L and it's my daily commuter. I have an Xtracycle that I use for grocery shopping or larger purchases, a Nishiki Mixte that's used for random around town adventures and my Surly Long Haul Trucker which is used for touring and all around dirty adventures. I know quite a bit about bikes since I have a live in bicycle mechanic. We're crazy bike people. We don't drive our bikes anywhere, our adventures start from our front door step everyday. We also have 3 cats that are absolutely insane, but that's another story.
