Hi. I'm 25, long time biking fan, but new to road/competitive cycling. As a youngster I was into the bmx type of riding, which I still enjoy watching when it is on TV. Even attended a 2-Hip King of Vert show, circa the late '80s.
I purchased a cheapo, no-suspension mountain bike to ride to classes during college. Began riding more and more after finishing college, recently fitting some road friendly tires and clipless pedals on the MTB. Am looking to purchase a road bike for next year.
Regarding the picture in my profile, that is actually me in the white hat... I had a conveniently timed business trip to the big apple in early August.
