I've been lurking on the bf for a few years now and I've just decided to finally join. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and have been riding for about 5.5 years. I used to work as a mechanic for a few years while I was in my undergrad but I now work at an alternative high school. I have track and a cx bike and I'm looking to get a road bike one of these days. I just joined TeamMack Racing so maybe that will motivate me. I look forward to hearing from all of you. Cheers.
