    New Commuter

    Hey everyone,

    I've posted a few questions here already, but thought I would post my introduction when I finally bought a bike!

    My name is Matt, I'm a Junior at UCSD studying Economics, minor in Accounting. I'll be commuting to school with this bike. I plan on locking it down reallly good and taking the computer and seatbag, etc with me.

    I just bought a brand new condition Giant OCR3 from my local Play it Again Sports. Got it for 400 bucks, I think it's a pretty good deal considering the bike has only been ridden about 2 times before it was sold to PIA.

    Upon buying it, I took it right to my LBS, got it checked out, and had a number of things put on it. LED USB rechargeable front and back lights, a rack, seatbag with two tubes, patch kit, tool, clipless pedals, a spare set of guppy lights, and a portable pump. The bike came with a Cateye Mity 8 computer.

    Here's a picture attached:
