Greetings from NE Ohio!

Every time I google a question about my bike, I always find the answer on here anyway so I figured I may as well become a member.

Name's Josh, I'm 22...like everyone else I've ridden a number of bikes since I was knee-high to a duck...latest whips are a red 70s Schwinn Cruiser, & a blue Lotus Elite fixed conversion. White Weinmann DP18, white 23c tires, & 46/15 gearing (which I love).

Just rode to Cleveland last weekend (63 miles), it was my first "big" adventure...looking forward to making increasingly longer trips in the near future.
