My name's Ivan. I've been biking for over a month, mostly for commuting purposes. Although I have a car, I pretty much have no use for it anymore since biking has been so pleasing. I have a Sunbird Free Spirit road bike I found at a flea market, and it's done the job so far. One day when I'm a rich man, I'll upgrade, but I'm having a blast on this one.
Mostly joined to learn some tips on bike maintenance (I'm a total noob when it comes to things like this). Here's to a long stay on this forum.
EDIT: I'm in Chicago, by the way.
