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.
My name is Matthew. I am a petroleum engineering student at OU. I received a fixed gear bike from my girlfriend for Christmas a few years ago but I really did not ride it very much since I was more involved in golf and drifting. Well now that I am a full time student once again I had to postpone golfing and drifting because they are so expensive. I started cycling to stay fit and give me something to do in my spare time besides watch tv. Although cycling is not a cheap sport I find it to be much cheaper than my other hobbies.

Welcome to the forums! Although it can be expensive, it can be done cheaper than some think. I have tried many bikes, buying and then selling, I am down to 3, a roadie, mountain bike, and a hybrid. I ride my roadie most now but still climb on the others every now and again.
