    noob from Nebraska

    Hey all -- started bike commuting this summer, now it's in my blood! I've only got an 11-mile round trip (all trail, except for 9 blocks of street) I'm commuting on a 1980s Schwinn Traveler road bike-- nothing fancy, but I love it since that's the only bike I have. Should I buy new? Will I notice a huge difference in today's new bikes than on my 1980's 12-speed Traveler?

    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.

    No, no difference. Really. Funny, funny! Welcome to the boards. Oh, and if you really want to get them riled up, post that in the Road Cycling section. You'll get responses for days!
