Hello From The Windy City
My name is David as you can tell. I have not been riding that long at all, just started maybe 2 years ago. A girlfriend at work got me hooked (again) and I've been riding ever since. I've had the same bike for about 18 years, a Schwinn Cross-Fit. It did not have all the fancy bells and whisltes that todays bikes have but I loved that bike. To this day it still in great shape and fun to ride. I now have another bike that the same girl gave me, it's an older Trek 400. I plan on making some adjustments and get it road ready for this summer. Can't wait! Well I hope all my fellow cyclists out there have great and fun rides. Stay smart and safe. Life is short enough so enjoy the ride!!

From a former Chicagoan, welcome to BikeForums.
Hey Dave, the bells and whistles on the new bikes don't mean a thing unless the motor is doing its job. Good luck on your riding, and since someone turned you on to cycling again, you have a duty to take the lead in a repeat performance.
Dude those are some awsome looking bikes!!!
