    Echo Park, VERY nub, /curtsey

    don't know which is more daunting for me as i'm trying to scratch the surface - learning the technical aspects of bike anatomy, or learning the complexities of commuting here in downtown. both can kill me if i'm not well versed, if i understand correctly.

    most of my online inquiries have directed me here, so i figured registering would be a good idea.

    so hi

    Welcome to Bike Forums. We have a lot of NY riders here.

    What kind of bike do you ride?

    so hi
    Whereabouts in Los Angeles (if my geography is correct) do you commute?
    And are you my (Nerdanel's) father-in-law?

    thanks for catching the location AND the lotr reference, Nerdanel ;p i usually go with Fingolfin on my mmo forums, but too many people think its a golf reference...

    i live a bit north of Sunset (x Beaudry), and i shoot down Grand into downtown - the few times i've had the balls to mess with traffic.

    i've made some extremely uneducated choices in bike purchases over the years. have a Giant FCR3 atm, but now that i'm making a transition to more dedicated riding, been looking at Jamis Beatnik vs Bianchi Pista flat bar. i don't want to clutter an intro thread with whats better questions, but yeah, i'm a novice rider with a huge void of knowledge. i just know i dont care about being "deck", but i do appreciate the aesthetics of a a bike...to an extent.
