    A casual rider from Dallas

    Hi all. My name is John Syrinek from Dallas, TX. I was a software developer, but have recently started back at college studying arts and technology. When I moved to Dallas, I bought an old red '77 Schwinn Varsity (you know the one) for what most of you would probably consider too much so I could ride around the beautiful lake. This is my first bike as an adult.

    After replacing the busted tires, converting it to a single speed, removing the rear brake, re-taping the handlebars, and lubing everything, the bike is OK, but I'm trying to decide what to do next. Whatever it is, it has to be cheap.
