    Hey- I'm a senior at the University of South Carolina, originally from Overland Park, KS. I'm 23 and just got into cycling- I managed to scrounge up an old steel Serotta and I'm looking for training hints- mainly, I've been out of all physical exercise for a year, and I'm trying to figure out a good, safe way to get into shape so I'm not always the red lantern. I have a stationary that's been getting a workout, but I'm not sure if just pedaling (with gear changes every now and then) is at all helpful.

    Hello rouge lantern, what kind of Serotta did you scrounge up? Got any photos?

    Even a stationary bike will help a bit. It's nothing like actually getting outside and having fun, but it's better than sitting on a sofa all day.

    Welcome to BF!

    posted on the fitness side...waiting for some hits : ) - I don't have any photos uploaded yet, but I will. I know its mid 90's with a stock paint job - solid blue with red letter- I found it way cheap from an ex-triathelete in St. Louis...gotta love bikes that scare people off because they're steel...
