Hey

Hi? Sorry, I never know a good way to introduce myself on a forum. So here, this is as good an introduction as anything:



I ride a GT Taffic 4.0, this is more or less my first nice bike. I really liked biking in high school but when I went to college I more or less abandoned my bike for my car and never went back. About a year ago I moved to Sendai Japan (where I live now) and wasn't able to fit my car in my carry-on. I got what they call a "Mamachari" and my love for biking was reborn

Mamachari:


(not my bike but they all look exactly the same)

So yeah, I live in Japan and I work as an English teacher. Neither my wife nor I have had a car in over a year and we don't regret it at all. My commute to work is pretty short (about 2 kilometers) but I make it a regular habit to go on weekend trips throughout the summer. I think my next big trip will be a trek down to Tokyo; it will be about 450 kilometers each way.

Anyways, I have been reading some threads here on the forum for the last couple days trying to figure out what sort of upgrades I might want to make but I will save that for another post. I look forward to contributing to the community here.

Will
