    new biker

    Hi. My name is Brian and I live in the Cincinnati area. I'm fairly new to biking, did it a few years ago but had a piece of junk, so I gave it up. Other than that , when I was a teenager I had a 10 speed that I used to get around everywhere and I miss it. Besides, at $3.95 a galllon and the owner of a Dodge Ram, (and a little pudgy) I need to do something.

    I have a Scwinn Pathway that, yeah, I know, isn't an expensive bike but it gets me around and it's comfortable. So far, it's dependable,too. I might look for another one later, but for now, this will do.

    Hey, nothing wrong with any bike that gets you out on the road/trail. If you really like cycling, you will eventually upgrade, and then the Pathway turns into a beater bike . Or, better yet, turns into a commuter bike!
