Hello from Philly, PA

Hello everyone. I started a couple threads and realized I haven't in here yet. I've been riding for about 6 years since I picked up my first road bike, a caad9, in college and haven't stopped. Moved down into philly since I'm a sysadmin and IT work is easy to find in the city. Of course, i picked up a beater fixed gear and love riding that in the city as well as roads outside the city for training. I like to pick up bikes and have built up enough of a shop to fix everything in house, so that's been a fun learning experience too. Now it seems I just like to sit on craigslist and wait for something that looks fun to fix up and ride, or give to a friend. I'm sure these forums will be pretty good for some insight. Had some issues with allergies and asthma before, but maybe next year I'll be in the shape to get back into some competition, so we'll see how that goes.

Nice, might want to give some trails outside the city a try too. I haven't done much with my go pro, but I made a basic time lapse of the trail to Valley Forge and back. It's a nice flat ride along the river, perfect for general riding.

Are you attending or have a spot in the show? I'll be there either way.
