    Real name: Becca

    Where do you live? Omaha

    Explanation of your handle: The princess and becca parts are self explainatory. The misspellings on both are an old joke from high school band. I missspelled it on a sign up sheet and they started calling me by the phoenetic pronunciation of the misspelling, "preen-s-bee-sah".

    Explanation of your avatar: Is that my picture thing? It's me on a bike? lol

    Age (general or specific) 30.5

    Occupation: Insurance claims processor

    Favorite bike: MY bike of course, a Marin uh...something or other.

    What's in your stable? Just my Marin right now. I had an electra townie 7d (orange, her name was Ginger and she had fenders and a basket and a bell and was SO CUTE) but had to sell it when I needed money to fix my car

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? I've never ridden a road bike, but I think on a hybrid my top speed has been around 16 so far. On a spin bike I've gone 30.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? how do I post a picture? LOL I'm new.

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: Probably something along the lines of "omg I so DON'T have a crush on ____"

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Gosh, probably when I was 18 and at a friend's lake cabin. We got these OLD bikes of her grandparents out of their shed and rode all around the lake. I hadn't been on a bike in at least 6 years, which is a LONG TIME when you're 18. It was just a fun day.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? The first ride I took on Ginger (my electra) with my personal trainer. It was the first time I'd ridden in 12 years, and my trainer is just one of my favorite people. I pedaled my little heart out and he just talked my ear off about the gym he was going to open (which he's since opened, and it's doing fabulous, we have a waiting list <3 )

    Explanation of your handle: nickname from my husband when we first dating, also a Steppenwolf cover of an Etta James song.

    Explanation of your avatar: I haven't managed to do an avatar yet.

    Age (general or specific) 40

    Occupation: Elementary school teacher by trade, but a stay-at-home mom for as long as we can afford it

    Favorite bike: my Focus, because I ride it the most, but the Shelby for sentimental reasons

    What's in your stable? Focus Corrente disc road-ish bike, Specialized Rockhopper FSR mountain bike, Raleigh M20 commuter bike, and 1950's Shelby cruiser that was my mom's when she was a kid. My husband refurbished it for me for a 40th birthday present.

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? about 33 mph, on one of my favorite downhills on Helvetia Rd., last week!

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? Someday I'll get a photo posted...


    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: "I'll be right back"

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Every ride seems to bring a memorable moment, but my biggest accomplishment was finishing the 84-mile day of hills on the People's Coast Classic ride for the Arthritis Foundation last September. My longest ride ever, for a great reason, and just two days before my 40th birthday!

    Most fun ever had on a bike? That's a hard one, there's so much fun out there!

    I remember being about 7 years old and riding bikes with my brother through the gutters after a big rainstorm. There must have been a foot of water (probably about 6-8 inches, but in my 7 year old mind it was a deep river) and we came home soaked. So fun, but Mom was not pleased.

    A more current example would be my Mother's Day morning ride. An hour to myself, recovery ride from the day before so taking it a little easy, really noticing all the animals and plants I am so lucky to see on my rides, and smiling and waving to the TONS of cyclists out there that lovely sunny morning.

    Fastest speed on a road bike? just over 30 mph maybe?

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? I have no photos of me with my ride....

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: I really try very hard not to lie. Probably something like, "No, I'm not mad....."

    Most memorable moment on my bike: I'm such a beginner that right now it's each new longest ride (42.3 miles this week)

    Most fun ever had on a bike? For the last 5 years I have occasionally commuted to and from work, on wooded trails, along the rivers... and this has given me such deep peace, and such an appreciating for the natural surroundings here. Love those rides.

    Smile Hi I am Jane. Requesting info on Trek 7.4 FX

    I am Jane, and I am looking for a new easier to ride, fairly light weight more upright bike. I have a chronic heart condition and will require a heart transplant one day. This new bike will help me stay well longer, as I am able. I won't be riding it too long or far, but it will be good for me. I have a Madone but find it too difficult for me to ride now. I may get back to it later. I am requesting your opinion. For a light weight, easy to ride more upright and cute bike. I think the Trek 7.4 WSD looks like it might be the one. I liked the 7.3 but the store didn't have the 7.4 in stock. I understand that it is lighter, but how muchnlighter I don't know. I would need a 15 frame. The 7.5 fx looks good by info, not in the store, but it is much more costly. Not sure I need to gomthatnhigh, as I have the Madone for later. I would love your feed back on the 7.4 WSD. I am very excited about this remarkable gift. Thank you all for your help. Jane

I had to stand all the way home.
