    Greetings from Las Vegas!

    I've actually been here for a couple of weeks now, although mainly not venturing much past the commuting forum. Lately though I've been branching out to different sections of BikeForums so I figured I would properly introduce myself.
    I'm from Las Vegas, Nevada. I joined this site because I picked up a bike off of Craigslist to commute/joy ride on. I traded a guy my old snowboard for a 2001 Trek 7500FX.
    I have also joined a couple of local riding clubs/groups.

    There are several reasons I decided to start riding. I used to ride BMX when I was younger.
    I decided to start riding for my health. I'm a little on the heavy side these days. I'm 6'1" and 210lbs just barely making me a Clyde. Clyde Pride!
    I also wanted to ride because of gas prices. If I can start commuting to work, we can get rid of one of our cars, saving us several hundred dollars a month in car payments, insurance, gas, maintenance and repair, etc.
    Also I just wanted to do it to make a change in my life. Live a little healthier, a little greener perhaps. Change up my daily routine a bit. Kind of my way of being a rebel and sticking it to the man (in a sense) by getting out of my car and into the fresh air.

    Trying to get my wife on a bike, but I think it's going to take some time. She's still recovering from a snowboarding injury to her knee. I also want to get a bike for my daughter when she's old enough to ride. But for now she can ride in one of the tow-able baby carriers.

    Anyways, I love the forum. Lots of good stuff here. I love all of the stickies where everybody shows off their bikes.

    See you on the road!

    Hi talleymonster, good to meet you! It looks as if you have found your way around without any problems, too. Saving money is good, keeping your sanity is even better--that's what I like about riding.

    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
