Hello from Aventura (North Miami), FL
Hi folks, I recently bought my first bike in many years. I got a cheap Trek aluminum mountain bike from the local shop. Only now am I learning that my riding profile fits much better that of a touring or commuter cyclist* but I had no way of finding that out before I got the bike and started riding. At least the thing was cheap. I installed a rear rack and now I'm installing some Wald baskets, I might replace the nubby tires, and I'm looking into adding bar ends to make my long road rides more comfortable... obviously a rather uneducated newbie
I hope to find other likeminded folks from my area...
*Not actual multiday touring, since my work schedule is so busy, or actual commuting, since I walk 5 minutes to work -- more like 50 mile urban rides on my one day off, which is Wednesday, just going around the Miami/FtL area looking for interesting places to visit and things to do.
