hey bike people. my name's jacob, i'm a 21 year old college student at vcu in richmond, virginia. i've lived here for a couple years but just in the past couple months discovered the joys of owning a bicycle, and am having a blast with it. i ride a 1975ish schwinn continental that weighs a ton. i've started seriously considering converting to a fixed-gear, but will need lots of guidance in that process if i decide to go through with it. while richmond is full of bike kids, i don't really know any of them, so i'm learning on my own as i go. that's about it. i like what i've read already on the forums here and hope to find the time to make good use of the information gathered here. word.

my baby. she was my dad's, bought in 1975 for $145. my mom still had the owner's manual. heh.

ps: she weighs a ton. :\
