Hello everyone! I've been lurking for about a week and just signed up for an account tonight. My current ride is a GT Timberline (1999, I believe) which my Current girlfriend bought used for me after someone stole my Diamondback a couple years ago. I bike to and from the T in Boston and am considering the occasional 14 or 15 mile trek (one way) to work along the bikepath.
I'm going to be the annoying guy asking "What's that?" a lot. 90% of what I've read so far goes right over my head. I'm a complete newbie!
Welcome, I've been biking for several decades and much of what I read goes over my head as well. I just live by the rule that if I find my pedal in the up position, I move it to the down position. With this simple philosophy I have managed even century rides. I really don't worry about whether I am in a 52/12 or a 30/25 gear. I just pick one that seems to work for me and return to the philosophy mentioned above. Keep it simple, Derek. Keep it enjoyable. I would die for a 14-15 miles trek to work along a bikepath.
I don't think anyone has noticed the reference in your title, but greetings from a fellow U2 fan (note the digits embedded in my name! LOL!)
I am relatively new to all of this too....I'm sure we'll see each other around on the boards. :)
