I’m a middle-aged guy from Warren County, New Jersey who now lives in Roxbury, Connecticut. The cycling here is outstanding – We have quiet back roads, mile after mile of quieter dirt roads, and a choice of mountain biking trails. I own 5 bikes; a carbon-fiber Orbea road bike, a 2015 GT Grade 105 gravel and commuter bike, a 20 something year old Specialized Sirrus that was my gravel and commuter bike, and now serves as a spare and a trainer bike, a 1985 Ross mountain bike that I just hung up in favor of a 2016 Specialized Fuse Comp6 Fattie (a hardtail 27.5+ mtb). All of them except the Fuse have Brooks saddles. I’ve written a couple of books on carpentry and spent a couple of decades as an editor, mostly at Fine Homebuilding magazine. Now I’m a lead carpenter for Hudson Valley Preservation in Kent, CT.
