    well, hello!
    I see you like donuts. If that carries over to Pi, Pie, beef jerky, and quail, you'll fit right in.

    We don't say hello either. (Right, MV!) We have a secret handshake. Well it's more of a footshake. Our Forum leader lost his hands in a simulated pirate fight at Disney World. Long story - don't ask.

    But until you find out what the footshake is, no one will pay you much attention.

    Welcome!

    Don't be afraid of buying a used bike. That's where you get the best deals. My bikes are all 12 years old or older, and they work great.

    just pickin' with you. I hope you know. Welcome and ask all the questions you want.

    And like Michigander said, don't worry about getting a used bike. My first two bikes were used and I rode them religiously with little to no problems.

    I was bikeless for a few months while on bikeforums. Just be patient and get the right one that's right for you. Especially the right size. Nothing like a bike that doesn't fit. It can make you hurt in places you didn't think had hurt potential.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    You noticed the sign at the Foo's gates right? The one that says "those who enter here abandon all hope" or something like it...
