sometime commuter

Hi guys --

New here...I commute 1-2 times a week (it's like 42 miles return...) on a 2005 Rockhopper comp (with bar ends, clips and conti town and country's...otherwise stock). I'm big (6'4, 225) and have a nasty habit of breaking bikes. This one has help up well in the 1,300 miles I've had it, including towing my daughter in a Burley.

Just signed up. Looks to be a great site.

Cheers
