    hello from chicago

    My name is Sam. I'm from Illinois and I go to school in central Illinois, but am originally from the Chicago suburbs. I ride my bike as much as possible because I don't like cars, I use it to get to and from classes and everywhere else. I have a Schwinn super le tour frame that has been converted to a fixed gear.

    I joined this forum to get ideas for bike routes, and get reviews on parts, bags, etc. And, anything else that I learn slash can contribute will hopefully benefit me and this forum.

    peace and much love

    Hi Sam! I'm from Chicago too, Orland Park to be exact. I'm new to the forums also and just bought a new Trek 7.3fx bike. I wish I could ride my bike to work, but my job is driving pretty much everywhere in the burbs, so unfortunately I'm a big gas consumer.

    Great to meet you!

    I will post pictures of my fixed gear soon in the fixed gear forum

    I do have a car, but I only use it for very long distance traveling, like across the state. I bought it when I was 16 and thought driving was cool; now its barely worth anything, so I'm just waiting for it to die.
