    Hello from Ohio (and other places...)

    Hi everyone,

    Just joined up after spending some time lurking, trying to pick up info on my next bike purchase (a tri bike - after one sprint tri last summer on a borrowed bike, I've caught the bug and plan on doing a few of them in 07. Enough of them that my fat-tired daily rider hybrid ain't gonna hack it.) I found some good discussions going on and thought I'd stick around around and make myself comfortable. I've been riding bikes all my life, but am very much a novice on the technical/gear side; so I'll be listening more than speaking up, except for when I'm seeking advice on getting a good bike on my (very meager, student) budget.

    I'm currently in grad school in small-town Ohio (and may be as long as I can stay outta the real world), and am originally from beautiful southern Connecticut...

    Hello MHK76, don't be (too) afraid to ask questions. It is a good idea to search through the archives and check the stickies, though!

    Welcome to BF!

    yeah sure you're there for grad school. lol You're in a good area in Southern OH to be a road/tri rider. I make my trip to Athens every now and then(usually not with my bike though lol coughcoughhalloweencoughcough)
    if you venture a into the hocking hills you will have some gorgeous rides. I don't know of many tri riders in the area, but I do know of a few roadies if you're looking for anybody to ride with.
