Single speed rider Portland OR

This is my first post to bikeforums. About three months ago, I got my hands on my first single speed ride: an '06 specialized langster. I changed the drops to bullhorns and the gear ratio from 48/16 to 48/18. I have also recently added shimano m540 clipless pedals and specialized sport MTB shoes. In all, I totally love the bike. The ride is stiff, responsive, and quick.

I live in Portland OR and work at OHSU. I have only attempted the OHSU hill twice (succeeded once). The assent was kinda painful and I have not tried again since changing the ratio and getting the clipless pedals.

So, here is my bike porn:

Look forward to interacting with folks here.
