Hello! From Ann Arbor, Michigan

Hello everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself to all of you and say that I've read quite a few posts on this site and have really enjoyed them. I finally decided to sign up and I think I'll enjoy the community here.

I don't yet own my own bike (I've been using my girlfriends) but I hope to own one soon. If any of you have any tips on where to get a nice used, or the type to get, that would be wonderful!

I live in a college town, about 3 miles to downtown, and I want to get into biking more. The downtown is bike-friendly(ish), but there is also a LOT of traffic at certain times, and most drivers don't pay much attention or much care to bikers or pedestrians.

So with that, I'm looking for a bike that is good for commuting, but I'd also like one that I could use for longer distance biking. If possible, I'd like to be able to do trips of 15, 20 miles or more comfortably.

Thanks a lot everyone, and I am looking forward to being part of Bike Forums!

Hello cineman, and welcome to Bike Forums!

I'd expect used bikes market to be somewhat lively in a college town? It would be good to have someone with you who knows bikes when you go shopping though.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
