I've just gotten seriously into cycling in the past few weeks. I used to ride a Trek 7200 hybrid, but I got sick of it pretty quickly when I started riding on the roads regularly. I just had an old Peugeot single-speed put together at a used bike shop, so I'd like to start by getting to know more about my bike. I'm also interested in any modifications that might make road biking easier or more efficient for short people, since I'm already having a problem with my brake levers.
I'm a 22-year-old female in Philadelphia who recently finished a crazy and rewarding year of teaching middle school English. In a couple of months, I'll be entering a masters degree program in Library & Information Sciences. I'm hoping to be a bike nerd in addition to a book nerd!
