    New from Culpeper, VA

    Just got into cycling and I am really enjoying it. My weapon of choice right now is an 08 Fuji Roubaix Pro. Went for a 10 - 15 mile ride yesterday and really enjoyed it. It was also my first ever attempt at using clipless pedals/shoes. No problems whatsoever with clipping in and out at all which I think is an accomplishment in itself.

    Things I'd like to do is improve the motor of course and learn how to wrench on my bike. I would really like to network with someone local who wouldn't mind spending a little time with me going over a few things. My next bike mod will be installing my Astale 8 computer, which looks straightforward outside of the cadence magnet. Meeting the 5mm clearance limit may be a challenge with the distance between the cranks and chain stay. I may tackle it today if I get time. Otherwise I need to mess with the front dérailleur... couldn't get out of my big chain ring yesterday on my ride.

    Will be poking around the forum and reading up.

    Welcome to BF.
    If you want to meet locals, stop by the Southeast Regional subforum. Lots of DC and Virginia folks there.
