I have a vintage bike, but it was brand new in 1968 when I bought it, I ride it mostly on the local trails or just out for a short spin to get ice cream. I have a whole stable of newer bikes, and to tell the truth, the new ones are just too nice to ride the vintage on long rides.
I love my oldy but it is just to heavy, hard to shift, not to mention the gear ratio is pretty limited, to take out on long rides.
get ya a nice entry level bike, unless ya got the dough for something real nice, and make sure you get fitted by a quality shop. you won't be sorry and just use the vintage for those nostalgia moments
