    Thank You Tom Stormcrowe

    Hi fellow bikers, i just joined this forum yesterday, and everyone has been extremely extremely helpful, and I am very greatful. I would like to give a special BIG thank you to TOM STORMCROWE. He actually helped me find a great bike online when i asked for his help on the pm. Well the bike he found me last night is the bike I OWN TODAY! He found an excellent bike on criagslist (which i had no clue on how to navigate) i contacted the seller, and picked my bike up today for 80 dollars! the bike is excellet for my size, for the owner had it made for his tall 6'8 300+ # body! its slightly big for me, but i adjusted the seat, and its perfectly find for my first bike, hopefully i can soon start posting my weight lost if i ride the way i plan 2!. so thanks to all, and a special thank you to TOM, this is my first bike since i was 8 YEARS OLD! peace... heres a picture i took with my camera phone...

    congratulations on the new ride.
    Since you are new around here I figure someone needs to "show you the ropes." You need to know some of the unwritten rules.
    Rule #1: Never post a message about a new bike without including TONS of pictures. We love our visual stimulation! So, we are going to need another posting from you, sooner than later, with more shots of the new bike. (Preferably with you included as well.)
    Rule #2: You must start posting your progress so we can all be encouraged by your development. Postings that list goals smashed and new/improved goals are always appreciated and encouraged.
    Rule #3: Be ready to pass it on. (I guess the phrase these days is "Pay it forward.") Be ready to encourage others new/prospective riders as you become a seasoned veteran.
