As you can tell from the thread title, I am from Portland, OR. My name is Nikolaus (or Nik or Niko), as well as I am 18. I am new to biking, though I had dreams of being a BMX racer when I was little, but that all changed when I started playing music, instead.
I do not have a bike at the moment, as I am still searching, but I have one in mind that I am going to check out tomorrow, and, hopefully, that deal follows through. I want to start riding, again, for the enjoyment of it, commuting, and exercise.
I know Portland has a huge bike scene, but I did not realize just how big it really is. I have been reading over threads here for the past couple of days to try and learn more about bikes, so that I have a better knowledge of the thing I shall begin to ride.
