Hi, Im not a "real" cyclist.

Hello bike forums, just signed up here and thought i'd at least put up a intro thread instead of just lurking.

Anyways i recently bought my first bike since i got my license at 16 yr/o. Mainly for commuting, since i moved to a new place where its only 2 miles from work (n i could use the exercise). While i was browsing on what to get, the only thing that met my criteria of quality+reliability+budget was a Motobecane Track from bikes direct. I know what ur thinking (what a hipster/ poser, thats what my friends said too) But it makes sense to me cause it's everything i need, and if u ask me its pretty hard to find a solid bike with gears under $300.

I'm really more of a motorcyclist.. except like i said, I'm only 2 miles from work now.. it by the time i get the bike warmed up and gear on I'd already be at work by pedaling. heres a couple pics,





it's nothing special I found those bars r take offs i found at a near by shop for $10 + $10 grips + lights $40 + $20 16T free wheel that I'm running right now till i get used to the hills around here (theres no flat ground in my route..) i don't plan on dumping too much into it, only NEEDS as i see fit and finding cheap leather straps for the stock pedals r the important parts next. any suggestion?
