I just registered. My wife is shopping for a 3 speed light cruiser, and that got me poking around the internet, and that led me here. I'm having so much fun shopping for her bike that I might get one of my own. I suppose that happens all the time. I already have a "vintage" Trek road bike (730, bought new in '83), and a Gary Fisher Tassajara just three or four years ago. I might sell one of them and buy an 8 speed Electra Townie that's available second hand. I'm getting older, with back, hip, and knee problems. The upright position for around town seems like a fine idea.
