    Petunia! I just walked in the door and checked the forum. Oh my gosh! Check your email. I remember the agreement and your avatar has been shipped.

    I remember that first air you caught in Sisters and the shriek of surprise. Ah, I remember it well. We'll go hit the canal bank in a few weeks and go for more.

    Welcome to the board Blare and Petunia! Fun stories both of you!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    and thank YOU, CorsairMac, for the welcome. Hi all new posters!

    I *tried* to get an itty-bitty Balrog for an avatar, but it was still too big! The search continues ...

    Welcome Mercury/Sarah from SadieKate/Sarah, another Mercian owner. I have a 1981 Mercian King of Mercia given to me by my hubby for Xmas years and years ago.

    Email the nice folks at Mercian and give them the serial number. Voila! You will have your info and you can ask for a nice pretty new color catalogue.

    I'm lusting after a Miss Mercia for a townbike, not that I NEED one. But then there is Rivendell Glorius too. Maybe I need them all!

    Real name: Michelle

    Where do you live? Vancouver, Canada

    Explanation of your handle: I've never had a nickname, I'm just one of those people that doesn't really suit one I guess so I would give myself "chelle"

    Explanation of your avatar: avatar??....you mean I could have an avatar??

    Age (general or specific) 34

    Occupation: Professional mountainbike racer

    Favorite bike: Honda RN01

    What's in your stable? Well I ride for Santa cruz so, a SC 2006 V10 dh, a SC VPFree, a SC Blur 4cross, a SC Roadster, that's it for SC but I also have a specialized BMX for the skatepark and a xc bike. Is that enough?

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? I've never clocked my road bike but at the world championships last year they had a radar gun at the top of a jump, 69 km's, that's about 45 to 50 mph

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? I don't know how to do that here

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: I told others that I was a boy for 18 yrs

    Most memorable moment on my bike: We could be here for days. Any time that I have two wheels under me. Other than that my first year at the world championships, wearing my country's colours and walking in the opening ceremonies, unforgettable.

    Thumbs up It's cool being bionic!

    SadieKate:
    It IS a great feeling. 4 ops on your knees? You've got to be some tough lady!! I hear that those are the toughest surgeries to experience.
