    Greetings from Somerset County, Maryland!

    I'm glad I went procrastinating on my college work. Search around the Internet hard enough and you'll find anything, right? =D

    Lesse, what to say... To whoever'll actually read this... Hi. =) I'm Charles, or Yoshi, or something, and I'm from Kingston, Maryland, on the road to Crisfield.

    I took up cycling two years ago thanks to my old job, and grew really hooked on it. So now, I'm known on the highways of three states and five counties, and I wanna see how many more counties I can add to that list, being stuck on the Peninsula and everything.

    My ride's nothing special, just a green Next bike that I bought at and rode home from Walmart. It's simple, but it'll carry me a couple hundred miles in a day with no problems.

    And I think that's it. I'm terrible at introductions. XD

    Hi Charles/Yoshi/Onore Baka Sama/XD...are you known in three states and five counties with all those names?

    The Next is all right, as long as you make sure everything is tightened down properly. Do regular maintenance on it though, and check for cracks and whatnot...

    Welcome to BF!

    Well, not really with the name, just as that random idiot on US 13 or US 50 with a green bike. On MD 413, everyone knows who I am. XD I MIGHT have a reputation out there for going into stores and buying two-liter bottles of tea during the summer, I'm generally unforgettable. =P

    Thanks for the welcome, though!

    What do you mean exactly by "cracks"?

    If you are riding your Next that much, you could possibly be putting more stress on the frame than they normally get. Check the welds every so often to make certain that they are intact.

    We want you to be safe!
