Howdy. I'm brand new to this forum as I'm just getting back into riding on a regular basis. I'm about to be 29 yrs old. The last time I owned a bike (up until a few wks ago) was in about 2001, in college. I grew up near Eugene, OR riding BMX and mountain bikes. Loved it. In college down here in the Bay Area, CA I had about 3 bikes stolen in 3 years -- each time w/ the bikes locked, but I could have prevented two of them. Chalk it up to being more of a carefree free/gift bike owner. Such is life. So now I'm looking for a lifestyle change and am going to be driving the car less and the bicycle more. I'm excited about it. I love bikes. I just bought a 2008 Kona Dew FS a few wks ago. Sweet bike. But I didn't really think it through... I'm going back to school and will be leaving my bike locked up in San Francisco for long periods of time. I don't want to leave this fresh Kona up there. So I guess my main bike now is my Kona... BUT this weekend I'm going to pick up a converted singlespeed older 70's road bike. I'm pumped. Looking forward to speaking with some of you folks!
