CONGRATULATIONS on making your goal weight! I can only imagine, for now. Remember everytime someone makes their goal weight, the fatmanonabike pedals a little harder. Thanks for the motivation. May you never gain again!

Thanks for suggesting the Selma to Montgomery ride. My wife and I really enjoyed the ride, the history, the hospitality and even the chilly weather. The organization and support for such a large event was fantastic - I already have the 100th anniversary ride penciled in on my calendar.

If you need parts, let me know and I will see what I have available. I have a '83 Merckx and quite a collection of old parts.
