    Well, well, I can still do this.. (New Clyde)

    Sad but true... so anxious am I to get out on a bike I pulled my wifes 1997 Murray 15 speed in mint condition....(wonder why?) out of storage. I lubed and adjusted it and rode it about 8 miles. Bike is way to small for my 5'10" 260 pound self. The seat post is at it's limit, rigid forks, derailer I never heard of.. LOL Bike says it was made in TN in the good ol USA. Probably the last cheap bike that was. It carried my fat self down some easy trails through a couple fields, and on pavement. I can still ride adequately (never had to push it!) so I can't wait for a bike that fits. Leaning towards a Jamis SX due to budget.

    Here's the poor Murray Womens: (I hosed it off so she wouldn't yell at me.)

    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
