The coolest new guy you will ever meet...

Hey guys,

Manifestiny here from Middle Tennessee. I've been cycling for about 5 years, and in that time, I have a aquired a few bikes. The first, an AMX Patriot, was bought off eBay for $200 and lasted for about years (had to upgrade the downtube shifters though). I recently got a Cannondale Synapse as part of the Habitat Bicycle Challenge. We rode from New Haven, CT to Seattle, WA in two months...not too shabby. My dad got a Mike's Hard Lemonade Beach Cruiser for me.

I love to ride bikes. I am about to build a fixed gear, but money is tight, so I may buy one from bikesdirect.com. These pages help a lot for research and the like.

I'll be here from now on.

Love,

Manifestiny

Hey manifestiny. I have a Cannondale Synapse myself, and really like it. AND I just built a fixed gear bike myself. Wierd! Based on these similarities to me, I'd say you're very cool.

Hello manifestiny, what route did you take to get from New Haven to Seattle? Sounds like fun, at any rate.

Welcome to BF!

Actually, we took back roads and highways the entire way. Also, my favorite state was Montana...follewed closely by Washington.
