I happened upon the Bike Forums during lunchtime at the office. I posted a question in the mechanics and was plesantly surprised by the quick and friendly replys. My riding is primarily limited to a couple miles through the neighborhood in the mornings before going in to work, but have ocassionally participated in nearby rides with a local bike club. I'm not up to date on all the different bikes and models available. Mine was a gift from my oldest son when he was preparing to go overseas for a year with the Air Force. I only know it by the name it bears: Mongoose. I've ridden it for about three years now and have enjoyed it much.
