Salutations from Austin, TX

I am new to this site but I have found alot of useful info already. I am currently riding a 80s (?) Schwinn Traveler III. I bought it used from the local shop (Clown Dog Bikes) and fixed it up and converted it to a fixed gear. I am riding a 39/14 ratio. I'll never go back to freewheels. I am living in Austin, TX right now but I am from Salt Lake City, UT where I did alot of mountain biking. I am a part time student.

Hello to all.

Yay, another Austinite. Lots of good bike shops here, lots of places to start finding rides if you are looking to hook up.

I've never heard of Clown Dog Bikes, and I've been in Austin a long time... going to check them out when I have some time off from work. I like wandering by local shops, seeing what is new. Hopefully they took good care of you... I've found Austin shops very helpful.
