Hello from Houston!
I'm a relative newbie to riding. It's strictly a functional endeavor for me: I ride my bike to work, school, the store, etc. Or, I did until my bike was stolen. Today I bought my first fixie. So you'll be hearing a lot from me!
I've learned so much already, just reading posts on here. It's pretty amazing!

Welcome to Bike Forums.
...for the warm welcome!
My fixie is a late fifties (I think) Hercules. So I'll be hanging in all sorts of forums. I'm pretty sure I was taken for a bit of a ride on the price (rookie mistake!) but I just fell in love with it the moment I saw it. It spoke to me. It needs some work, for sure. But I just need it to ride. I kinda want it to retain its weathered, used look. It's a bicycle, not a show piece. lol.
Welcome Spruce! I may be moving to Houston in the spring.
