I'm just a geek who likes mountain biking. I ride a 2008 Cannondale Scalpel 2, and I love it. It is a sweet machine that does exactly what it's supposed to - allow you to fly over any XC terrain. Upgrades include a Lefty Speed Carbon SL (this fork weighs 2.55 lbs. and is stiff as hell), and Avid Juicy Ultimate brakes. All else is stock, except the frame is a 2009 Scalpel Team frame (one of '08 chainstays decided it had enough of life). I plan to upgrade to a BB30 crankset in the near future.
Other things I enjoy: driving my 2001 Corvette convertible, playing baseball (I currently play for the Derry Astros in the Granite State Baseball League's over-30 league), hiking in the White Mountains, and playing my drums (rock music).
