Hello, i'm from St. Paul, Minnesota, United States. i'm riding a bike i got at the Goodwill for $5. It is an "Iron Horse" (with no shocks) it is pretty nice for $5 dollars. It's got good 3 piece cranks and it looks like at one time it was a "medium end" mountain bike, possibly. It's got straps for the feet and it rides VERY well. i plan on using it for transportation around the cities here and for some rough trail riding.
i used to be a BMX biker but i beat my body up way too much. i ended my biking life when i broke both my arms with a total of 3 broken bones at once along with a stitched up chin. i purchased my current bike two years ago to use as transportation and i live in the cities now and look forward to the warm weather to begin some REAL biking this summer.
i'm happy to find a forum because i don't have any other friends who use bikes to get around and it will be nice to bounce ideas off people and get some tips. Right now i do have a thread open because i had a question. The thread is in the "Bike Mechanic" forum. Here's a link if you think you could help me out with a simple problem: Shifter beyond broken!
