Hello everyone! I've just started riding a bike from being off one for quite some time. I am a full-on newbie, but I've done my homework. Wow! Bicycles sure have changed alot since I last looked at them 12 years ago. Back then I thought I'd never have to ride one again, having gotten my licence and all. But now that it costs me $40 to get a full tank of gas for my car, I've changed my tune. It's actually quite nice taking my short commute to work these days. I have also started running errands around town on my new little bike. And I feel more fit already!
My sweet little ride is a 2002 Fuji Supreme hybrid I got a Performance Bicycle shop. I got it for a song because I guess their clientele looks down upon non-performance bikes. Doesn't bother me: I'm no speed demon, nor am I a massive adrenaline junkie. In fact, I've converted my humble bicycle into something of a European city bike. I get weird looks now and then, but I don't care. I enjoy starting my day with a short bike ride to work.
Currently I only commute to work and run around town on my bike, but I may try my hand at mountain biking if I really get into this, which seems the case now that I'm on a forum. I'll also have to purchase another bike as my Zefal fenders and generator light would probably look a little out of place on the trails. So expect to see me asking some questions about that soon as well.
Hope to caht with you all soon!
