I'm very new to the concept of riding bicycles as my main mode of transportation. I moved from Chicago to Cleveland last year and was accustomed to public transportation and walking as a means of getting around. I couldn't do the same thing in Cleveland and just could not get used to driving a car everywhere. So I came upon a Trek 720 Multitrack from the thrift store for 30 bucks and I've been hooked ever since. Admittedly, I know extremely little about bikes, my own bike, how to actually ride properly, bike culture, etc but I know this forum is a rich resource for such information and I'm looking forward to learning and getting to know lots of people who share my enthusiasm (though, newly found) in bikes.
