I have been on the list for over a year. I live in Cleveland , Ohio ....Yes I am Black.

You know , I have purchased items from a few people on the list and have even visited on list member at his well stocked garage. He even installed a headset on a Colnago I was working on.

Strange the issue of race never seemed to come up. We are just a group of people with a common interest.
