Greetings! From Cleveland, Ohio

Hello people!

I am a new rider. Mostly, I run but I am looking to crosstrain.

By the way, if anyone can give me some advise on reliable folder bikes, that would help me select one for my husband who is 6'4 320lbs. I hope to find one with a reliable frame that he can easily fold and put into his frieghtliner. I posted a message in the link for the folder bike forum thread, too.

I have heard that the Matrix is a good bike. Is that true?

Thanks for your help.

See the discussion on the Dahon Matrix folding bike in the Folding Bikes forum under 26" Wheel Folding Bikes.

Come on down to the "Ohio City Bicycle Co-op" if you are interested in meeting others in the Cleveland biking community.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Didos.

I am planning to join the Ohio City Co-Op. I have a new Cannondale Hybrid. I really need to learn how to work the gears -effectively! Do you all still meet in the winter? I planned on joining back in October, just about then I got an IT Band injury -bummer. I missed the Halloween ride and everything. When do you think would be a good time for me to join? Probably first Saturday of the month, 'ey?
