Hello from Bawlmer!

Hi all, my name is Dan.

I'm a Texan by birth, transplanted to Baltimore about a year ago now. I started riding because I couldn't afford a car and the public transport here sucks.

Currently I ride a Nishiki Saga that needs some work (it sat in my parent's garage for a 20 years or so) that I've put enough time/effort/money to make it rideable. I recently picked up a Miyata 512 that I found by my apartment's dumpster. It's only problem is it's missing a wheel (I'm kicking myself because the missing wheel was sitting out by the dumpster a week or so ago).

About me: 28 (almost 29) medical student who has recently discovered the pleasures of commuter biking.


Looking forward to chatting bikes and other things with people, hopefully learning some about how to keep everything rolling smoothly for me. It's nice to be here.

Welcome to Bike Forums. For replacing a missing wheel you may want to seek out a local bike co-op.
