    New Bike, New sport

    Hi,
    I'm new to the forums, and generally, to the biking thing..
    after a few posts, decided to take the plunge and buy a normal bike, not some x-mart rubbish.
    Today i have ordered a custom Specialized HRXC ( custom paint " Grey Green ")
    paid waay too much for it ( local pricing), so this will keep me commited for a while.
    I must say the people here are amazing.
    When i'll get my bike( tomorrow) i will put a bikeforums decal on it..take that LBD!

    Anyway, this is an introduction of sorts..
    will post pics when my RXC gets home..

    Just look for markers near you. As the map gets populated, it will eventually become a great resource, I think.

    Is it worth adding the map to the FAQ/sticky thread or your sig? I'd not seen it before.

    Feel free to add me - I'm in Canterbury in the UK.

    No doubt - the map is very cool. Over 59k views so far.

    I wonder how many of them are other fat folk looking to drop some poundage? (My brethren)

    Add me as well. I'm in Houston, TX, Just north of the 610 loop, just east of Ella. If you need more info, pm me.

    Hey, Tom...

    I posted my location a long time ago as Los Angeles. Can you change it to Santa Clarita, zip: 91351? A little more accurate.

    Thanks.

    Just click on the placeholders. I think you're the first Atlanta member, though. There are a few BF members outside the Clyde/Athena group around, like ModoVincere, who's a pretty good guy. He and I met up when I was down for Tour de Pike in March, down in Pike County, south of you.

    LBD is an inside joke that's been floating around BF after a thread got started where "Load Bearing Decals" got bandied about. A member was getting teased that his bike was going to explode after he took the decals off of his suspension fork and this was because the decals were "load bearing". It was a great gag.

    That is a sweeeeet looking bike. If the 21" frame is too big I'd be happy to send you my shipping address.

    And, Tom, you can place me at Oxnard, CA 93035. Thanks.
