hello, I'm new. My names Luke, and I am a student at CSU in Fort Collins. I have been into baloon tire bikes since I was a little kid, and commute about 5 miles a day on a 1948 Rollfast Deluxe. Im hoping to trade in one of my old bikes for something a little more commute friendly, because its a little rough lugging around a 50 pound bike on a hot summer day! Anyway, I assume I am going to need to utilize these forums once I have gotten a bike that has more than one gear, because gear bikes are a whole new realm to me.
