hey all, just got a couple of schwinn cruiser 4's my wife and i are gonna start riding rather religiously once the weather allows, been ridin around in a few inches of snow lately. i, like fred, also came over to bicycles from a bad addiction to scooters, though ive got no idea who fred is. decided to get bikes after a few years at my non-physical job driving in a car all day or sitting behind a computer all day had managed to take its toll on my gut, figured a bicycle was the best way to get "active" since i cant easily pry myself away from 2-wheelers. we both liked the looks of the cruisers and figured they'd be great for us, just wanted to pedal around town and maybe take them to some of the "scenic" trails not to far from us. I live in West Frankfort, Il if anyone was wonderin. I may have some stupid questions from time to time if i cant find it already asked here on the forum, other than that im pretty much just a lurker. lookin forward to enjoyin these bikes though !!!
