Introductions - Hello Everybody I'm new
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Hi, I'm Jon and I'm from PA. I just picked up two Schwinn Walmart specials. I bought them used, I haven't been on a bike in a few years, but I couldn't let them get past me. There's alot I wanna do with one, but I'm shocked by how complicated this is. Let me look around to figure where I should post all my tech questions. They're Krate types and I wanna mod one and I need to know where to ask/what section. I don't plan on doing an exact replica, I wanna use modern parts. Should I still go to the classics/muscle bike section?

Welcome to BF.
It is too not difficult.
you have made the first step.
Get a floor pump. Keep air in your tires and ride.
I little oil on the chain and go for it.
You will learn what comes next.
Go slow, have fun.

I would try in both the Alt bike culture section and the bike mechanics section. I like what you have planned, ride one and modify the other. I predict a rapid learning curve and a new local bike shop (LBS) bike within the year.
