I'm a 70's baby. I'm a geek, in the best sense of the word.

I've progressed "up the communications stack" (think the TCP/IP stack) over the past 14 years:

  • I studied electronic engineering
  • I spent years wrestling with search engine spiders analysing web traffic before it was called Web Analytics
  • I built and tested opto-electronic circuitry in chemistry research, then integrated those circuitry with Lego Mindstorms on MIT Media Lab projects
  • I spent 5 years working in systems, network and infrastructure administration for various IT and Internet companies
  • I spent 7 years working in mobile telecommunications services building mobile Internet networks.
  • I am now working in information architecture, interaction design and human computer systems (HCI).

My favourite word is why. I'm skeptical. I like the outdoors, but live in cities.

I ride my bike, take photographs, travel as much as possible, drink good wine and eat good food, and talk too much.

revised How often should I change my bikeshoe cleats?
This is not specifically about a mountain-bike, just MTB pedals.

@DanielRHicks But I wouldn't expect the pedals to wear out after a year of usage, approx 4000-5000Km of cycling?

comment What are the strengths and weaknesses of Rido saddles?
Yes I understand about the depression along the centreline. I think this is a similar approach the Rido saddles take - put the pressure somewhere else other than the...important bits. When I watched the person riding his bike with the Rido saddle, his weight did seem to be over his assbones and so saw the benefit of it.

comment What are the strengths and weaknesses of Rido saddles?
Nope, bike shorts are on. It's not particularly bad, but is there. My legs were used to it before, but its been years since I've biked hard, so I am hoping my legs will get a bit "harder".
