    Hello from Detroit

    Hello! I have been riding BMX (street and trail) for pretty much as long as I've been biking, which is about 3/4 of my entire life. I'm living just outside Detroit and I attend Wayne State. I am planning to get a fixed gear bike soon! I'd like to get out to the Velodrome in Rochester sometime.

    TR, you won't regret that move! I love my fixie, and can't imagine not having it in my stable.

    you're a braver man than I!! Fixies frighten me. I miss the days when I could ride BMX. between my weight and possibly my lack of skill I kept bending cranks and wheels. Even broke a few frames. I'm always amazed by what some are able to do though. As a fellow metro Detroiter, welcome to the forums!!!
    I'm riding again in the Tour de Cure, and of course looking for sponsors and riders: My TDC page

    Hey there.

    I live close by and know people that go to Wayne. I ride more of the big wheel bikes. I never got into veledrome racing, but it sure does look fun. I just do regular road riding around the metro Detroit area with the Woleverine club.

    Hello, from the west side. Good luck with the fixie.
    Monsignor: We must always fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil that we must fear the most, and that is the indifference of good men.
    Connor: I do believe the monsignor's finally got the point.
    Murphy: Aye.
