After a countless number of times of seeing bikeforums.net pop up in google searches, I decided to finally join. I've been riding for just about a year now. Mostly city riding, but I do love going out on trails. I got into biking in order to get in shape, and so far its paying off. I've lost 60 lbs since February. I recently moved to the DC area, and I'm now currently employed as a bike courier. I do not ride a fixed gear, my bikes have brakes, and I don't have any spoke cards.
