Another Hoosier!

Hello all, seems like a great web site.

I just bought a great mountain bike off craigslist. I'll try and upload a picture later.
It was raining when I got home (first time in months!), but I did get to ride for 30 minutes
or so, it rides so great, shifts good, new tires, new brakes, it had just been tuned up.

I have not ridden a bicycle in years, it is true, you never forget!

Hello seagullplayer, sounds as if you are already off to a good start. Are you planning on commuting, as well?

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

My daily commute is about 70 mile round trip. I'm not even considering the bicycle for that. Right now I split that duty between my HD Sporster and my Ford Ranger...

You know, I can understand why you aren't commuting on your bicycle for that round trip!
