I have been a computer geek for pretty much as long as I can remember. I first got into computers when my original hobby of electronics started getting too expensive for my pocket money, and have since managed to turn my hobby into my career. I like to keep up with the latest in technology, and how to apply it to what I am working on.

comment What should a big guy look for when buying a road bike?
I have had really good experiences with the Mavic Krysium wheels (bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/3618/…) a bit more expensive than the Aksium, but tough as bricks, just a lot lighter!

comment Why participate in an organized century ride when I can ride the route on my own?
I would go further, for myself, even though I could (probably!) do this on my own, I think that a ride like this would be great fun! I have done similar on my motorbike, and in cars… it is always a festive time.

revised What are the differences between “clincher” and “tubular” tires?
Fix up spelling error in title. I know that it is one letter, but it is annoying, since it also means that it shows up in the URL
