Dear Webmaster,

I recently discovered your page here:

I wanted to let you know that the “spinopsys” link on your site points to a website ( that is no longer working.

Would you please consider replacing it with a link to my website called It is a resource for anything and everything bicycling, cycling and trail riding.

If you think it would be of use to your visitors, would you please consider adding a link to my website on your page.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
