Chicago!

Hi from Chicago! I've always loved biking, but only started taking a more serious interest in it 6 months ago. Since then I've tried to bike around 20 miles a day, and ride to just about any place I need to get. I bought my first roadbike not too long ago - a '74 Varsity Schwinn, a beater in very good condition. Now I'm on the lookout for something better within my budget.

I'm hoping to gain a lot from lurking around the forums!
