so, I just joined this forum after a few weeks of lurking

I've been commuting regularly to school (2.5 miles each way, mostly low-traffic roads) for about a month and a half now in the very bicycle-friendly city of College Park, MD from my off-campus house that I have lived at since last summer, and I'm getting more and more into biking... I've been riding the trails around this area fairly regularly lately

my current bike is a Raleigh mountain bike that I have had for about two years... I want to get a road bike soon though
