    newbie

    Hi everybody. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and picking your brains. I have a takara road bike ( I found this bike in the trash at work, took it home cleaned it up and enjoy riding it. I believe it to be early 80s) and a walmart schwinn mtb. I have been commuting to work on the mtb for a couple summers (I live in Hutch KS, very cold right now) I have decided to participate in some races and rides this summer, specifically the flinthills deathride in july. I hope to learn what I need to know to get prepared for all this.

    Welcome Aron to BF.
    Lots of info here to help you train.
    I had a dumbster road bike that lasted 10 ten years. All I ever did to it was put air in the tires.

    Nice! - Welcome Aron - there's lots of good info here as well as some good brains to pick for the info you need to know! Check out all the many forums - there's something for everyone here, and I'm still discovering the wealth of knowledge here as well.

    Hi Aron! Welcome to Bike Forums!

    It goes to prove one man's garbage is another man's gold.

    You are very lucky to have found that!
