Greetings from Providence, Rhode Island

Hi all,

I'm a roadie/bike commuter. I do a 16 mile trip from Providence to Woonsocket most days (and then back again). My current ride is a Cannondale R700 but I'll soon be purchasing a cyclocross bike. I'm thinking of a Fuji Cross Comp or possibly a Kona Jake the Snake. I want to use it for commuting, off roading, maybe even some racing. One of these days I may even get a MTB. Who knows?

Peace!

Kirk

Hello Kirk, both of your cyclocross choices are pretty good, but it's just so much fun to say "Jake the Snake" .

Welcome to BF!

I finally got my bike. I got a good deal on an '06 Bianchi Axis. It's making for a fast yet steady and reliable commuter. You can see it on the Commuting forum:

Very nice! Do you use a messenger bag or backpack? I don't see any panniers on the bike yet.

Thanks! I use a messenger bag with laptop sleeve. For now, it's all I need. I keep a supply of clothes, towels, shampoo, etc. at the office and carry my lunch.

You are lucky to be able to do so!

If you ever do need panniers, though, I know the Commuting forum folks will be happy to offer advice on the best ones!
