hi, your forum is awesomeness. i'm nuts about bikes. i go to michigan state university, so there's lots of bikes here to stare at. i currently ride a TREK 4500... but what i really want is a beat up p.o.s. fixie. so i've been gobbling up bicycle magazine's complete guide to bicycle maintenance and repair, drooling over surly's site, reading about hubs, and hawking people's garages...generally avoiding my studies... i'm a kinesiology major... at least for now. that's about it. you guys rock.
