Im relativley new to riding, currently living in san marcos. i commute to school and run errands on my aunt's old schwinn. (its red.) i think its some variant of the tour series bikes, but it really doesn't matter, it rides well. i try to ride on the weekends, and if i get to where i can ride 25 or more miles i might consider a more dedicated properly fitted bike, that is a good bit lighter. right now, im in the 10 mile range, then i need a break.
