Hi everyone, I've lurked here for a while, but never registered until now!
At my college's bike auction yesterday, I managed to get away with a Giant OCR3 for around $400 less than MSRP.. so I was pretty happy about that. I'm still pretty new to bikes and all, the bike I got at auction is my first serious bike and I hope to get more into the sport/hobby/whatever! I used to have a car but after an accident it was totalled, and I have had no means of transportation in college.. until now! I hope to go car-free until I really need one. This seems like a supportive community along those lines, so I'm happy to be here.
