I'm a 50 year female who has lurked on this forum for a long time. I haven't posted before now as most of the posters are male and I sometimes have very different situations than them.
But it is still so wonderful to be surrounded by people who really love bikes; it's hard to describe how nice it feels to be among people who are passionate about bikes, of all things.
I use my bike almost exclusively; I had to pay to get new rotors on my car as the old ones rusted out due to lack of use. I live near a downtown in a smallish city and I love being able to do all I need on the bike.
It's nice to finally post and be a more active member!
