Hello from Kalamazoo!

Hello there, I am Dominic P. from Michigan, and I am new to the bike community.
I currently own 2 bikes, a cruddy 2000's era Mongoose Freestyle project bike, and a 2017 Aspen Super Sport Bike.
I'm excited to get into the bike community and I hope to get to know more about bikes.

Welcome from NorCal! Everyone starts out on a "cruddy" bike. But really. If it does you good, it's not cruddy at all. At least you are riding, and that's what counts!

Welcome to Bike Forums, Dominic P.! It's those cruddy bikes that allow you to appreciate the less cruddy ones.
