    Real name: That's something I'm disinclined to hand out on a public forum, sorry y'all...this is the 'net. On the Internet, no one knows you're a total creep until you give them enough information to non-consensually make your acquaintance. Seen it happen—not going there.

    Where do you live?: USA

    Explanation of your avatar: n/a

    Age (general or specific): Under 90 (How's that for general? ;-))

    Occupation: Other

    Favorite bike: I have only one. So far.

    What's in your stable? Cannondale Trail. Because it fits, is nice and stable, and isn't a hideous color. Better toys to come, I'm sure.

    Fastest speed on a road bike? I'll let you know if/after I get a road bike, and if I decide that speed matters. ;-)

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: Being nice to a friend who revealed themselves to be a sociopath, while quietly backing away. When the hair stands up on the back of your neck, don't worry about telling them off—run. Without making it look that way.

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Too soon to tell.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? We'll see.
