    Hi all,

    Just a quick intro to tell you a bit about me and my new bike.

    Live in UK in Derby and recently got back into cycling with the purchase of a new Schwinn Supersport GS road ("fitness") bike. I love it, and have already clocked up a good few miles around the South Derbyshire byways.

    The Schwinn is not a particularly well known brand around these parts and it gets quite a few curious looks from other riders that I see out and about.

    Not sure it's taken too seriously by the drop bar riders though as it is fitted with flat bars, but hey I like it and really enjoy it.

    I typically getting out once or twice a weekend (weather permitting) and the routes I have found so far are about 25 - 30 miles over varied terrain.

    I'm planning a 60 mile "mountain challenge" road cycle next year for charity in the Derbyshire Peak District so that is a goal that I will be pleased to acheive.

    If there are any other Schwinn owners in the UK (particularly SS GS) I would like to hear from you and hear what you think about the bike.

    Signing off,

    Adrian

    Hi - Serious mileage !

    Hi 10 Wheels,



    Your ride out distances are puting mine to shame at the moment !!



    Did 30 miles this morning but boy was it windy, and the back roads are so muddy that you get home looking like youv'e been off roading not on road.



    Time to give the bike a clean,



    Cheers



    Ade
