    Hello from Rochester, Minnesota

    Hello everyone,

    I got into road biking just a couple months ago when i bought a cheap beginner schwinn prelude. It most likely isn't worthy of the road by many of your standards, but I enjoy it very much. I got into road bike just for enjoyment and to stay fit. I currently am just shy of 200 and would like to shed a few pounds. I typically get out 3-4 times a week and ride around 10 miles each time. In the flats, I am able to maintain 19-20 mph. This coming spring, I play on buying a giant tcr.

    Here is my bike. I have tuned it, added a different saddle, a cateye speedometer and of course, removed the kick stand. The bike lock doesn't stay on for rides FYI. I am planning on getting clipless pedals and shoes soon.

    Hello Greg, you learn to ignore those who would sneer at your bike, and just remember that you're here to have fun, and enjoy the ride.

    If it gets you where you're going, and you enjoy it, that's all that matters.

    Welcome to BF!
