I've been lurking here for the past 6 months, so I thought it was time to join in the fun. I started riding again last year when I found a Huffy Mtn. bike dumped on my property. a new derailer (<$25) and I was riding. can't believe I forgot how much fun it is. By the end of last summer I bought a Lemond Big Sky. I am very glad I listen to my LBS. They explained the difference in bikes and I went with a relatively low end road bike over a high end Hybrid. Now I even have Biking goals. 1st to lose 20lbs and 2nd to ride 80 miles round trip to work on a few Saturdays by mid summer. I just need to ride as often as possible, See you on the roads.
