    Thanks for the great threads, here from San Diego

    Hi there, Found your site while trying to figure out if saving money and buying a bike online was safe and that I wasn't going to get completely ripped off. Lots of opinions out there, helped in my decision. Just finished running the Boston Marathon last month and was looking to take a break from running, save some money on gas and start commuting 32 miles round trip to work and back. Not a rich man but needed a ride. Did my 1st road commute today, sun was out, what a wonderful way to start the morning. According to icommutesd.com I'll have this bike paid off in 48.5 commutes that includes gas and maintenance $14.42 automobile & operation cost saved today plus 21.33 lbs of Carbon Dioxide, 586.52 gms Carbon Monoxide and a bunch of other ides. When looking at just gas about a 140 rides will pay it off plus we will all be able to breath a bit easier. Sh*t I was so excited when I got to work this morning I signed up for my 1st triathlon. I feel rejuvenated and ready to continue training. Maybe I should have got a nicer bike , nah I already put too much money into my full suspension mountain bike during the summers.

    Or, as we like to call it, amateur week.

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
