Hey O! Greetings from MIA

Hello folks

I am brand new to commuter cycling and I may be tackling the challenge in the least bike-friendly place in the States. Crazy Miami drivers are as bad as they say.

After passively using this forum for the last few months, I decided to join because I want your expert advice to do things right!

I am 20, short 5'2", and I will be commuting 30 miles daily at my max (all flat terrain). Lots of my friends call me crazy, but I remind them that people have paddled around the world, run across the country, and landed on the moon... this is just another small step for me.

Currently deciding between purchasing three bikes (touring?), which is the appropriate forum for this...it seems to be scattered everywhere.

Miyata - Miyata 52" road bike
GT Series 4 - *** MINT GT GTR W 4 SERIES ROAD BIKE 44CM SMALL MAVIC WOMENS ***
Cannondale - Cannondale road bike

Welcome to the Forums

I think that the Commuting forum would be a good place to start
