Hello List --
I used to live and work in downtown Washington DC where I would bike to and from work every day. Now, I've moved to the 'burbs, and I plan to keep biking. So, my dependence and relationship with my bicycle is growing stronger every day! I plan to start doing my own bike maintenance, so I'm sure I will need some assistance from the veterans out there. Thanks.
Welcome. I commuted on bike between Prince Georges County and Alexandria for years. It just makes so much more sense to go by bike up there.

Hi burck, what bike are you riding?
I had a Specialized mountain bike which was stolen a couple of weeks ago at the King Street metro stop. The good news is now I have an excuse to get a road bike. So, I just bought a 2009 Cannondale CX9 for my commute. I also bought a rusty, old mountain bike (1995 Diamondback Sorrento) that I am resurrecting to take to and from the metro stop when I need to. The mountainbike is my "project bike." I just replaced the rear derailleur, added some links into the chain, and replaced the back brakes. It's functional now, but needs some tuning.
