new here - couple pics of my bike

I've been lurking around here for a little while but have never really posted. I'm starting to get a little more serious about riding and have lots to learn in order to do so. I figure I should be in the right place for that.

Nice ride, I see you already ditched the reflectors, now you just have to do the same with the dork disk.

Ha will do. Thanks. That's the exact kinda of stuff I need to know. As far as a little about me: name's Brandon, I'm 23, and I live in Minneapolis. In general another hobby (it's more than a hobby really) has taken up a lot of my extra cash over the years so far...

Oh! Well I guess I am a dork then, I never bothered by with one of those before and I don't think it'll ever bother me.

Ha...yes. Good news is that drums make me a little extra cash. Now that extra cash just goes towards bike stuff. Thanks for the comments, everybody. Had a great ride on it today. It was my first time riding clipless. Felt faster and more stable throughout the whole ride.

Thats awesome!! I have been back at it," riding" for close to 3 years now. I still have not made the jump to clipless I really do need to, getting sick of being picked on by everybody I ride with, like I was still back in high school

I know there is an endless debate here regarding clipless vs platforms, but I really like riding clipless. Felt more comfortable climbing especially.

That "dork disk" can save your spokes from sure death if your chain decides to fly there all of a sudden.
