Hello from Orlando, Florida

Hello!

I've just gotten into biking in the past month with the purchase of a 1979 Schwinn Continental II. Performed in Alleycat race and other various activities in my community and I'm having a blast! I was never really interested in bikes until recently and now I hae bike fever! I Don't really know too much about repairs or what to buy and what not to buy so I hopefully you guys can help me out if I run into any trouble : )

p.s. I've been looking at this bike as a christmas present to myself

What do you guys think?

Hi jabikuta, the Fuji wouldn't be bad, but I think there's better bikes out there. Depends on how handy you are at fixing things...

Take some photos of the Schwinn, and as Lem said, come on over to C & V. We can talk you through the purchase of an older bike, too, if you'd like.

Welcome to BF!
