Hello from SW Florida

Hey My name is Brent I'm 27 and like most of you bikes are in my blood' I've been riding for years started off BMX then moved on to OT Then mountian biking and now that I have a family and little free time I am a 3 to 4 day a week commuter and enjoy riding on the weekends when possible. My current bike of choice is a Surly KM. I am an Auto mechanic by trade and love hearing the responses my coustomers and friends have when they find out I commute by bike, Like I am some looney. When in reality I enjoy it and the fact that I save hundeds in insurance and gas per month and it only takes about 10 minutes more than driving.

Thanks for listening to my peice, Brent

Hi Brent, you aren't the only auto mechanic on the forum who commutes there by bike! How cool is that, eh? I see you already found the Commuting Forum, too .

Welcome to BF!
