I'm a recent college grad who moved to New Orleans from Michigan to start their first full time job. I rode everywhere around school and I wanted to continue the trend. Currently I ride 1 mile to the ferry across the Mississippi, and then 10 more miles to work, 3-5 times a week. Sometimes I ride to night classes for another 10 miles one way. I love riding but most of my saddle time ends up being for transportation. I try to make it a workout though, 20 mph+.
I ride a 1972 french road bike (unknown brand), with mostly original components except for new wheels with a flip-flop hub. Its set up as a 52-16 singlespeed with chopped and flopped bars and a front brake. My stable also includes a 1980s Raleigh road bike (so friends can ride with me), a 2001 Gary Fisher Mt. Tam Disc, and a 1972 Italian road racer (probably a Masi) with full campy NR that was my father's racer in college and I restored 5 years ago. My tiny apartment is getting crowded.
I've been really impressed with the quality of the posters on these forums and cant wait to start participating!
