It's so awesome to find this forum, I've been reading all of your guys's posts for a few hours now.
I'm getting back into cycling after stopping for a few years after high school. I used to make 18 mile round trip rides 1-4 times a day, and now I haven't touched my bike in a few years. Shame. I'm working on upgrading it so I'm excited to get back out on the roads and get some fresh air!
