This thread reminds me of when I was 14 years old. All my buddies had these cool Torkers and Redlines and I was riding this piece of junk someone tossed out, they made fun of me and I did not care at all, was just happy I could ride with them. I cherished that piece of junk like it was my firstborn, it made me understand some things in life later on. Those same kids that made fun of my bike still exist in their 30s, 40s, 50s. To the OP, ride that bike with all your heart, stay with it and lose some weight like the rest of us want in this forum. That bike will be just fine, if you lived closer I would be more than happy to set you up on it and tune it when needed. In reality, a bike is a bike, of course there are better bikes that go faster but the key in your purchase is to get back in shape, any bike will do that.
When you do get really into it and I hope you do, beware of the bike bug, it will bankrupt the best of us. Some of us on here know what I am talking about.
