Hello from Okinawa!

Hey all. First off this is a great forum that you guys have set up, I look forward to using it and hopefully being able to learn a lot about cycling. To start my name is Adam Wilson, 24, I live in Okinawa, Japan on Kadena AB. I've been in the Air Force for nearly four years now all which have been here, I've done a tour to Diego Garcia in '08 and was in Iraq last summer. I'm new to the cycling world and bought my first bike yesterday on whim with hopes of getting in better shape and riding in the Tour de Okinawa in November, before I leave for Alaska for three years. My bike is a:

*Steppenwolf Prisma RC*
Black Aluminium Frame 60 cm
Carbon Fork
Richey Pro Components
Shimano Ultegra Derailleurs (2x9)
Look Keo Classic Pedals
Shimano WH-R550 Wheels
Sigma 1106 Computer
Carbon Bottle Holders x2











I bought it from one on my friends, for $750, who is German and just moved here to Okinawa. Being new to the sport I never heard of the company did some research and figured it was an excellant oppurtunity. I've been looking around for about six to get a bike and the LBS here don't carry anything in my size, and shipping from the states would have been around $200. Hope I made the right choice. See you on the road.
