    Hello from Los Angele, CA.


    Hello my name is Albert and I have finally decided to introduce myself after a couple of months of just lurking around.
    I have been riding around West LA for 1 year now and have been training for 6 moths or so.
    I mostly ride the LA River Bike Path or Griffith Park and do ~32 miles 5 times a week.
    I ride Fixed for training and race a road bike.
    I really love to ride and race.
    Riding is my passion.
    Below (Click on the pics for full size), the fixed gear is my trusty steed.
    I bought it with my own money for $370(I know I got ripped off, ohh well sh*t happens.) and have spent around $500 max on repairs and extra parts.
    I love it, it is about 1 inches to tall for me but it rides like no other bike I have ever ridden. I would not sell it, ever and would ride it anywhere, anytime, all the time. In fact i prefer it more than my road bike(For now maybe I will get hooked to my road bike later.).
    I'm not ones of those hipster teens and don't do tricks or skid(Yes, I ride a front brake after I learned not to skid when going fast the hard way ||speedy|| ||injured||.).
    It may not be a eye catching as my roadie but its not whats on the outside its about whats on the inside.
    As for my road bike all I can say is:it looks fast and it goes fast :).
    I really don't ride because I'm scared of getting jumped/jacked so I just race it.
    I prefer a track geometry for all day use for training any ways. Road bikes are complicated but I need one to be able to be competitive in races. I doubt I will win a CAT5 crit with a $500 steel bike but a full carbon fiber will. I really don't ride it much, I have only ridden it like about 12 times and raced 3 times. I love the feel though, its so comfy and I can show of when I do ride it. I got it 2 monts ago (I think i got it 2 months ago, I may be wrong because of my short term memory.)for a steal, around $1500 and I think there is no better bike i could of bought with $1500 that is full carbon fiber and has the 105 groupo and a name brand frame :).
    Well that's my 2 cents and i hope I can help out and see you guys around town.
    Have a good life.
    PS: We should ride sometimes :).

    The only thing you will ever regret, are the risks you didn't take.
