Introductions - the ultimate worst case newbie......
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.
Hello, I'm GVEE. I'm new here, and hope to be a "born again" cycler. I have a Vilano Drift. Yes, it was a pretty bad choice. I am 49 years old and out of shape, and want to use a bike as a training tool. I should have picked a better bike to start, but if I stick with it, I plan to build a better bike over the winter and give this to one of my kids in college. I will post my experiences with the Vilano so that others can make an informed decision.
Welcome to BF. The only "bad choice" for a bike is one that's never ridden.

Welcome to Bike Forums.
You will soon have very strong legs.

Why don't you like the Drift? Looks like a decent enough bike. If you're thinking maybe you should have gotten gears, just ride what you got for a while; I think you'll find some single speed zen. We're about the same age and my single speed has become my tool of choice for most rides.
Oh, I like it! I like the single speed, and I feel I got my money's worth. I guess I would be lying if I said I didn't have higher hopes when I ordered it, but as a beginner bike it is fine. I'm having a great time with it.

Don't write it off as a cast off then. You may decide to keep it for yourself.
