I rode when I was a kid, and a little as an adult. I used to ride an old ten speed that my dad and uncle rebuilt for me, but we lived out in the country, so I just rode in circles around our horseshoe drive. I used to work security and they had a couple of MTB that I used to jump on and ride around campus. Other than that, I currently don't own a bike, but i have been checking out the commuter section of the forums to see what other people are riding.
I have checked out craigslist, but I haven't been fitted for a bike or anything, so I am not sure what size frame I would need or anything like that. I was hoping to get out this past weekend to a couple of LBS, but I am in school and I have a paper due this Wednesday. I should be writing it as I type this message. Hopefully, I will get out this weekend and look around. I totally forgot about ebay as an option. I was originally thinking of a hybrid or MTB. One of my professors is an avid cyclist and he recommend a cyclocross, so now I am considering a cyclocross. I'm really not sure. There are lots of options and I am a Libra, which drives my wife nuts, so I take a long time to make a decision.
Thank you all for your kind words,
