Another LA Biker

Where are you from? No one is from LA. I am from upstate New York by way of Orange County, CA. I live in west Los Angeles in Playa del Rey.

What do you ride? I ride a bike that I got as part of the American Express membership rewards program for me and my wife. Its called a Fuji M-500 and no one has ever heard of it. I will probably get myself a new bike in the winter if I stick with biking to work. I think my wife needs a new bike that is easier to ride and has fewer gears.

How long have you been riding? We used to ride along the beach in Orange County, but not much in LA until recently. I'm definitely a beginner.

Anything else we should know about you? Lets see, I want to learn how to hop my bike up on a curb. I bought a messenger bag so I can commute to work on my bike!

Hello againstmel, hehehehe, so you want to learn how to bunny hop . Check out the Mountain Bike forum for tips on bunnyhopping. Kudos to you for getting ready to commute--some panniers might come in handy too if you can fit them on your bike.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
