Fresh meat

Hi all first post. I just discovered this forum but have been watching the newsgroups for awhile. I've been into biking for a while though I really got serious the past couple of years. I started out on a 2000 Trek 820 and my Brother's old 1990 Trek 850 antelope. Last year I bought a Trek 520 and a used 1990 trek 1400 for commuting. This year I began commuting everyday 20 miles each way from my home to school/work at University of Illinois at Chicago partly due to gas prices. I also bought an Iron Horse Victory with ultegra 9 speed sti because I fell in love with road biking and wanted something a bit racier. I also taught myself bike maintenance via the internet and bike magazine's book on maintenance. I have so many bikes now, I need to do my own maintenance.
Anyways I'm a 26 year old graduate student at UIC in Chemistry specializing in biochemistry and bicycles .
