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.
