    'Allo

    My name is Jen and I like bikes.

    I have three (well, kinda four, but that needs to change soon): a Norway 650b xc mountain bike, a Kona Cowan dirtjumper, and the newest addition to the household is a Surly Cross Check. I commute on my Surly most days. Hopefully I will get around to trying out a 'cross race or two this year as well.

    I'm not real sure what to say on a forum introduction, so if there is something you wanna know, just give a holler.

    -Jen

    Welcome aboard Jen! 650B tires seem to work pretty well for that Nino Schurter fellow. Please check in with the Mountain Bike thread. We are always talking about tires sizes and several are playing with the idea of going 650b. Las Vegas, NV here.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Hi everyone

    I'm in Milwaukee, WI, which is a surprisingly awesome place for bikes. It has become soooo much better in the past ten or so years, especially for commuting. There's a huge state mountain bike race series, 'cross is pretty big, and we just got a Ray's Indoor Mountain Bike park two years ago. I know there's a lot of road and bmx stuff, too, but I mostly know about, ya know, stuff I do.

    I am loving the cross check so far! I didn't think I would like drop bars, but I gave them a fair trial and I like them a lot now.
