'owdy from Indiana

Hello all.
My name is Justin and I'm eighteen and about to start college(IU:B) in September. 8D
As IN is basically one of the most dreary places to live in the U.S.(in my opinion, and I've been to some rather abhorrent places), I've decided to pick up cycling to hopefully stifle my boredom. Furthermore, it should be a good substitute for commuting, as I'll be unable to have a car at I.U.

Searching google for lists of cheap entry-level esque bicycles eventually led me here, and as it seems to be a rather raaaaaaad place, I've decided to register.

Well, I see you're going to go to Bloomington soon. Look up JoeMetal from the forums here....he's a Grad student at IU. Also, I may well be down there for the Hilly Hundred depending on my class load at Purdue.

Welcome to bike forums.

You'll love Bloomington. I lived down there a couple years a while back. It's a great bicycling town. That's where I picked up the habit.

One year of training may not be, uh, quite enough, I'd think. ;D

Glad to see other Indiana bikers, though. My neighbor(Junior at IU:B) used to race for Cutters, but went to another team.

10 wheels did it with 6 months training. I'll agree, though, I'll be putting Team Stormcrowe back together for TdC 2009, so you'll definitely be welcome.
