    Hello from Orlando, FL!

    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.

    Thanks everyone. I feel welcomed! Which I guess is the purpose of this section of the forum.. ahem.

    even winter cycling .
    Winter cycling? In Florida? Naww, that would be too hard. What with the total lack of snow and relative little cold...

    UCF??
    I hope the bike FITS and you'll enjoy many happy miles on it.
    UCF indeed! The bike does fit, actually, that's the only reason I bid. I'm short, and it was like the perfect frame size for me (as Giant doesn't do exact sizes for whatever reason, it was a "small"). Thanks!
