My name is John Krantz and I just joined the forum a few minutes ago. My wife and I live in Rural Madison County Iowa. (About 15 miles southwest of Des Moines, for those of you who might be from this part of the country.) I just recently retired and am looking forward to having more time to enjoy bicycling as well as my other hobbies. My stable of bikes currently includes a Specialized Sequoia road bike, a Specialized Rockhopper Mountain bike, an S.E. BM Flyer 29" single speed and a Diamondback Drifter 1 Cruiser (Just for fun).
