Hey folks. I'm new to cycling and I'm just looking to learn more about the sport and how to maintain my bike. I just bought a Fuji Cross Comp a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it. I intention when I bought it was for exercise and to get in shape as well as potentially use it to commute to work.

I look forward to learning from everyone here in the forums.

nice choice. If your like me you'll be eyeing everyone else's bike now that you've got one of your own. Knowledge will come naturally as you get more into it. Visit your local shop frequently, ask questions, shop guys are usually easy to talk to.

I know what you mean. I've been taking notice of all the cyclists where I live, especially the commuters, and have been back to the bike shop numerous times just to look around.

I know they have a couple of free clinics that I'll be checking out in the upcoming weeks.

That's the right way to do it. Just soak it all up.

Finally got a pic of my ride. I don't think I've ever been so happy with a bike before.
