Greetings

Hey all.
I am from Berkeley but go to UCSB so spend most of the year down in Santa Barbara. I am currently riding a late 70's Motobecane 10 speed (commuter) and a homegrown fixie just for fun. Unfortunately i will no longer be riding my Giant hardtail MTB seeing that i let my dad borrow it and it got stolen (although it isn't really his fault seeing that he had a u lock and a cable lock on the thing), but even though i used to do all kinds of biking, i will mostly be on the roads for the time being.

Cheers.

Welcome oh studious one,

Sorry to hear about the MTB. Explore the forums. It sounds like there are several where you'd fit right in.
Road Cycling, Classic & Vintage, Commuting, Starving Student, etc.

Cheers,

Z

Hello bakaster, the Starving Student forum isn't real, but I think Zorro's got a brilliant idea there .

If you could head over to the Classic & Vintage forum, and post some photos of the Moto, we would be very much obliged .

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