Hey, city dweller here (Chicago). I ride a bike to get where I've got to go. Been planning a trip along old Route 66, but just haven't done it yet. Discovered this forum while researching what sort of bike I should buy for this sort of trip as the beaters I've been riding would never make it past St. Louis. (I just ended up grabbing a used Fuji Ace from a local bike Co-op for $190 yesterday. Pretty happy with that.) Anyway, just here to learn a bit more about bikes and biking.
