I like bikes a lot, for lots of reasons. I like riding bikes, but I also like reading, writing, and talking about bikes. I believe that bicycling can make people's lives better - make the world a better place - and I like helping people use bicycles to make their lives better.

This website is a refinement of the advice and assistance that I have given to friends and clients over the years. By placing it here I've saved myself a lot of energy, and I've made it available to anyone who might find it useful.
