Greetings!

Hey everyone, I don't really know what to say here so I guess I'll just start rambling...


A little about myself, I am 6' 3" coming in around 185/190 lbs (need to shed a few pounds). I am really big into sports and video games and am willing to try anything at least once, twice if it feels good.

I am currently living in Belgium courtesy of the United States Air Force. I am stationed here for at least 2 years, we'll see where this assignment takes me or if I decide to stay put. Biking is huge here in Belgium and really helped me make that push to purchase my first road bike.

I have always wanted to get into biking and I jumped in, well, nose dived head first into making my first bike purchase. I have rode with my uncle back in California and loved the short 12 mile ride we did on his road bike. I shopped around locally (there are a lot of bike shops in Belgium) and wound up buying a really nice bike off a coworker who is even bigger into biking.

I purchased a 2011 Ridley Orion Ultegra (red/black/white) and on the bike are some nice Mavic Cosmic wheels wrapped by some Hutchison Atom tires. I have since made a lot of purchases online to add to my biking accessories and am looking forward to what the forums have to offer. Attached are some pics of my new ride.

Thanks 10 wheels. The previous owner actually installed the mirrors, they're not bad, I haven't had much use for them yet, they will take some getting used to as they're kind of small.
