I'll bite!

I'm everdaybike (EDB)
C... when you trust me enough to pm me.
Chet to the rest of the world... and I'm 55 and counting.
My best friend is Buddy, a rescued Red Bone **** Hound.

I found RBR one night severeal years ago when I was totally bored and Googled: Road Bikes after a few sips of my favorite drink.

I like what I found so I'm still here.

I lurk more than I post but you will find me here often if you look hard and I have many very special friends here who may not even know they are my friends cause I don't talk much.

I'm in C-ville, VA. and I love the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Handle comes from my basic cycling/life outlook... I don't race, I don't care if you do or what you ride and I don't care how long you've been riding. I simply like to ride and have everday bikes that will always get me there and back. I want that for everyone... and if you enjoy riding your bike, we definately have something in common.

My favorite ride is any one in my fleet that I choose to ride on any given day. There are 141/2 in all and they are all mixed up just like me.

I spend most of my non-working time with Buddy, here on RBR lurking and thinking about where the next stop will be. I'm restless and won't stop till I drop! I also love good takillya and that's my favorite drink.

I earn my living as an old school home builder who still thinks a home is a very personal thing.

I don't "date" anyone... it is so in the past!

Cheers! EDB

Here I go

jptaylorsg
— Real name: Joel
— 37
— Los Angeles; would love to move somewhere else, currently eyeing Colorado, N.C. and Michigan
— Started riding road bikes in 2002, but I was a bmx-er as a kid and a mountian biker before hitting the road
— I'm a clyde, about 6'4", 240 (basically boils down to two Yarbles, I think)
— Orbea Spirit steel/carbon with mostly 105
— Editor/grad student
— Found RBR in 2002-03, looking for reviews of road bikes while shopping. Found the chat boards more useful. Wandered into NCD/Lounge in 2004 sometime. Never seen a chat board more active. It's a freakin' phenomenon.
Only pic of me I have is from Disneyland. I was there to review the renovated Space Mountain for Amusement Business magazine

Is that a giant carp, or are you just glad to see Haiku?

For real. That's a carp, right? Heard they're tough/fun to land on flies.
