Trek 930 w/Xtracycle and Burley trailer, Redline Conquest
I came across this forum while surfing around various bike sites. Oh, how rude; I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Chris and I work as a Firefighter in Austin, Tx. I rode my bike across the country, from Oregon to Maine, oh maybe 13 years ago and worked as a courrier in Boston for a while before that. I really enjoy cycling, but I've never been really knowledgable about it. That's part of the attraction--very accessible activity without big investments of time of money (relatively speaking!). After several years off-bike I've now begun taking my 3-year-old to school in a trailer and we both love it. I'd like to commute to work but there are issues that I need to work out before that can happen.
Anyway, I'm really impressed by the forum--great, upbeat content and no immature name-calling. Looking forward to learning alot!
I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike

I hope you can get things worked out because commuting is a great way to start the day. And the ride home will get rid of any stress from the job.
