I just wanted to introduce myself. I am an Ag Engineering student at MSU, but I work for the USDA in Indiana. I am originally from detroit. I am a recreational and wannabe tour rider. I ride on a 2001 GT that is a mountain bike turned commuter bike. I just started getting into charity rides while I have been in indiana and found I really enjoy them. I started riding a little more seriously when I got to college, but I do it for the fun of it and the exercise, not for the sport (I guess its my excuse for sucking really bad! I tried to ride with the team here at MSU....they can vouch for this I am sure!) I am currently trying to restore an old mazarati since I can't afford a new fangled road bike, so I might be lurking in the mechanical forums.
