    From Missoula, MT. My interests here are in road bikes and in bike-commuting and advocacy thereof. I ride a Specialized Langster fixie (not all hipstered out like most) as my commuter, and a 2001 Klein Quantum Pro (favorite bike ever built) and a 2005 Lemond Chambery for sport. I'll post pics of them some time soon...

    Thanks all for the welcoming. I got pics up in the registry of the Lemond and the Langster.

    Missoula is still awesome. Its grown up a lot since 80, for better or worse but its still great. Just put in sweet new superhighway bike lanes in downtown with some Recovery-Reinvestment money they got. Lots of good things happening here these days...

    Yep, don't you just love how well others spend our money?!

    Only slightly related, but see if you can ID this quote from one of my favorite movies:

    "Obviously you're not a golfer."

    "It's down there somewhere, Let me take another look." You can turn the movie off there because there's no way to ever top that.

    Cool, I'm fine with that. Don't spend my money to do it.

    There are a lot worse things I can think of that they spend my money on...the most obvious ones to dislike being bank bailouts and an elective war. But I suppose this isn't a politics forum so I'll leave it at that.

    Also we got a lot of the chip seal roads going in too. I suppose it helps to get all the goods when your senator is the chair of the finance committee...
