Re-newed rider in L.A.

Hello,

I'm riding again after a year of bus riding. This time I went with a 70's 10 speed road bike. I couldn't stand riding a mountain bike on streets (which is where I ride 100%). The weight of the frame and the big road patches and the knobby tires were just too inefficient for me. I'm riding about 4 miles a day 5 to 6 times a week. Mostly going to and from work and going out to lunch to get away from the workplace.

Hope to learn a lot here.

Thanks
Wayne

Welcome! I also commute via road bike, but have gotten bigger tires due to the poor road conditions (35s), so far so good!
