    Bike n00b in Nebraska

    Hello all. I'm a 31 yr old Nebraskan. I've been a Police Officer for a year and 7 months now. I'm getting bored of traditional cardio and looking to get into biking. I loved it as a kid. I rode some in the early 90's and even in the past few years on my '94 Schwinn Hurricane MTB I had bought new. It's cold here right now...but I'm looking to get back into it hard in the early spring. Working out has become a very important part of my life now with the career I have. I've been slacking a little lately (riding in a cruiser) and I've gained 5 lbs. I've never been a lightweight guy though (well since my high school days). Right now I'm 5'11" 220 lbs with a muscular, stocky build. My goal is to stay muscular, but trim down to a lean 205 lbs or so. I also have goals to apply for the bicycle certification class and possibly work the downtown beat on bike. How much fun would that be?

    I recently put money down on a brand new '05 LeMond Big Sky SL the other day. I was close to getting an '07 Trek 7.5FX or a Bianchi Strada. I fell in love with the LeMond though. The hand positions were very comfortable along with the riding position. Not to mention it felt fast. I might pick up an '03 Trek 820 locally for $100 this weekend. The guy selling said it's in great condition, barely any use.

    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.

    Like Tom said, welcome to bike forums.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
