First time poster

Hi everyone. I stumbled onto this site reading up on the Kryptonite lock ordeal, and just kept reading. Cool site! I'm not a cycling fanatic from a sport or athletic perspective, I guess - my car broke down, so I bought a used bike as temporary transportation. Four months later, oil prices are higher than ever and I haven't spent a dime on gas - I couldn't be happier.

Welcome HoboRandy!
Your story sounds similar to mine. I started cycle comuting in the spring & bought a new bike to help motivate me. A month later my car died. I cancelled the plates on it & haven't driven to work since - a great way to save money/environment, keep fit & justify a cycling hobbie!
