Greetings from Largo, FL

Posting my first intro thread to say hello and hope to meet some neat people. Name is Anthony, and I'm born and raised in Florida. Got pretty heavily into BMX as a kid, but hadn't touched a bike in 10 years. Should also probably note that I'm 21 years old as I type this. My girlfriend just got me a bike as an early Christmas present.

Here it is:



It's a 1975 Motobecane Super Mirage. All original parts so far as I can tell. I've only been on it a little bit but it made me feel like everything was alright in the world around me.

Looking forward to getting some great information from the people here!

Go ride the St. Pete and Suncoast Trails. That's about a good century right there.

Welcome to the forums.

Oh, by the way, you might want to Google "bike fitting" or search that same term through here so you can get you bike set up for optimal performance and comfort - you don't have to sacrifice one for the other.
