    New to the forum

    Good day folks,

    Just wanted to chime in as I am new to the forum. I have been communitng for the past 3 weeks and loving it. My commute is from 13-15 miles depending on the route I take with some really minor hills.

    Reasons why I started to commute:
    - schedule conflict with my wife as we used to car pool
    - saving on gas and parking
    - most important reason, is getting fit

    My current setup is:

    Bike: Trek 2nd District Single Speed
    Pedals: Shimano M520
    Shoes: Shimano M076
    Fenders: Bontrager Satellite - love it as it is removable

    I am also riding with a backpack and of course a helmet.

    Love the bike but it is not as smooth riding as my Trek FX 7.3. Overall I am very appy that I did the jump to SS.

    It's nice to have alternative routes you can take, I've found my homebound commute to vary wildly in distance

    Welcome aboard!
