My name's Shane, and I just moved up to Minneapolis, MN from Baton Rouge, LA for the summer with my Specialized Sirrus road bike. I'm really happy to be in such a bike friendly city. I also plan on purchasing a folding bike, probably a Miama Citizen bike, in order to do some biking in Europe over December. Glad to join the forum!
