Ok, Im a high school student that has recently taken up biking. I had a low budget, but i picked up the dawes usa lightning dlx for 350$. The bike works like a charm and at least to me, seems like a 1000+ $ bike. (theree is actually a seperate thread all about this bike). I bike to school, and this summer im going to bike from schenectady NY, to Lake George in the adirondacks. That will be my longest ride, a modest 80 miles. I've just purchased an entry level spd pedal(shimano) for 33$ and a pair of 661 expert mountain ( i know i have a road bike but these were cheaper and i want to walk around pretty easier) bike shoes in preparation for this ride. Lookin forward to it and hopefully i can learn some things about biking in general from this forum.

Welcome to BF skibum. I lurked here for a few months before I joined, but after getting involved in a few conversations, I learned more about bicycles and cycling in a week than I had in many years riding.
No sweat about the mountain shoes, if they work and let you spin at a comfortable pace, they're the ones to have.
