Hello from everywhereville

Hey guys, back into the bike world after a long break. To include school, getting a license, joining the military, and wasting my time in my cave playing wow...

SO, I have recently purchased three bikes.

1995 Pre-trek Klein Fervor
Bought a few years back in an earlier attempt at getting back into the sport, needs a new paint job but overall a nice bike

New Giant Yukon FX3
My first mt. bike purchase in quite a while, I bought it to dip my toes in, not to have a nice high end bike.

New Orbea TVL
Very nice alu frame with carbon fork, and a full Campagnolo Veloce+ groupset (+ means Orbea sometimes doesn't put the right parts on, but 100% of the wrong parts are upgrades!! I can't complain LOL)

I plan to purchase a Fixie sometime soon, I want to use it as a commuter, depending on the terrain at my next assignment. Looking closely at the Wabi Lightning, Fuji Feather, and some other built bikes. I'm looking for road geometry, light, sub $1k.

I recently did a Coast to Coast ride across the UK, total of 140 miles over two days. Climbed well over 9k feet total. It was a blast, but definitely a test with my dual instead of triple front end.

I will be in the Columbia, SC area by the end of September!!!

Hopefully I get lots of useful info!!
