    Newbie here

    Hi all, newbie here
    Im in Chesapeake Va, Near Va Beach and am new here. I stumbled across this forum while looking to an answer to a question. I will post it after I get all of my bike info. I got my older (and taller) brothers Schwinn 10 Speed about 11 years ago when he passed away. I guess it is about 15 years old and is a 27 inch. I will get all of the numbers off it and post them so I can get some info. I am planning on riding it to get into shape and strengthen my back. Back surgery last year. Im 42 and feeling old.

    Welcome to BF.
    I think the 27" you are referring to is the wheel/tire size. A 27" bike would be huge.

    Post you questions about the bike in the Classic & Vintage forum. They have all the answers about older bikes.
