hello from glendale, california!

hey everyone, im mike.. 23 year old ex musician turned aspiring writer. i drive an suv and decided that being in that sucker was just not the way for me. been scouring craigslist daily and some of pasadena's best cycle shops and so far i'm leaning towards a fuji newest 1.0 to get me started. gonna be doing the daily commute from glendale to pasadena city college. about 19 miles round trip.

i know there's gotta be some burbank/glendale/pasadena bikers so feel free to say hello and give me some trails and/or great shop advice.

i look forward to getting on the saddle and never looking back..oh and being a good poster here, too.

Welcome to the forums Mike!

Looks like you are leaning in the right direction with the Fuji.
You can look up almost any bike here and get a lot of good information.
