Hey, I'm an 18 year old from Raleigh, NC. I've been commuting across town to get to school for about 5 years. My first road bike was a 10-speed Schwinn World (read: "Schwinn Anchor") that I ended up converting to a fixie. It got stolen from outside of my school, but I had some friends who found it and got it back for me. The guy who stole it had pretty much totaled it, so I decided it was time for a new build. I built up a pink Fuji Feather frame and have been riding it for the last couple months.
I work at Jimmy John's delivering sandwiches on my bike in downtown. I'm hoping to buy a road bike sometime soon and start racing, but I have almost no clue how to get started in the amateur racing world!
