Greetings from Memphis

Greetings,
I am glad to be a member of Bike Forums. I use my bike mainly for commuting (about 4 miles each way). The good news is that the roads here are pretty flat; the bad news is that it can get pretty hot and humid from May through September. So my bike was recently stolen: a 2011 Torker Graduate, which was decent, though suffered from some not so great components (e.g., a cheap plastic chain guard!). I recently started visiting Bike Forums to get the skinny on bikes that I would see on Craig's List. I just picked up a GT Arette for $40, which I have tricked out as a commuter (e.g., road tires, fenders). Hopefully, this will do the trick in terms of speed and comfort. Michael
