Cory - New Commuter

Put a Fuji Absolute 2.1 on layaway. I plan on commuting to work at least a couple of times a week. I'm trying to lose weight and get into shape (other than the shape of a baked cheesecake). Last time I rode a bike was in 2004. It was a Wal-Mart mountain bike but I really liked the ride. It was stolen from my old work place. Now I live about 13 mi from work and am hoping that I can use this bike and a change in eating habits to slim down.

Look forward to learning from everyone. I embarrassed myself at the bike shop by putting the helmet on backwards. Good grief, but at least the guy was nice about it (although I'm sure they giggled like schoolgirls after I left).
