Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

....is when I get to hop on my Kona "Jake" Cyclo Cross to commute to and from work. I live in Albuquerque NM and have a relatively car-free daily commute downtown to my job, about 4 miles one way. I'm hooked. Albuquerque also has a great climate for year round cycling. I carry paniers and a rear rack back... and wonder what else I could carry fully decked out? Next acquisition? Cargo trailer. Gas prices, health, the moment, the process and ritual of my bike are all reasons I commute by bike.
I'm looking forward to looking, learning, sharing, and expanding my cycling knowledge via this web site.

Mmmm - that's where they make the bubbly. Weird sprawling town, though.

Sprawling in some places, yes. But extremely ridable in many others. Miles of trails are added each year, and a progressive cycling advocacy community exists. Hundreds of miles of mtn bike trails within 20 miles of home.
I'm a newbie to the site, but not to cycling. Do folks generally list their bikes?
2005 Kona Cyclo Cross Jake
1998 Schwinn Moab HT MtnBike
1999 Dyno Cruiser (replica)
1992 Trek - first mtn. bike, converted to first commuting bike, now being overhauled (slowly)
thanks for repsonding to my first post

Check out Craig's list and eBay for used Burley trailers. I got one used 9 years ago. The kid's have outgrown it, but the groceries, etc. still fit. I won't give mine up, it's too useful. The kid's trailers carry more than cargo trailers because of the "head" space designed into them.
