Hi all - Kevin from Springfield, MA. I started riding (restarted I guess) a few weeks ago after deciding to do somthing about my weight. I always enjoyed biking when I was younger so it seemed the logical fix to the past 15 years of beer & Doritos...
Anyway, I'm doing ok, up to about 5+ miles / day about 4 or 5 days a week.
Couple quick questions, I do most of my riding in the city and on weekends I'm on country & back roads. I have a cheap Huffy mountain bike (the wife was hesitant to let me buy a new bike without showing serious initiative) but I absolutely need something new. Any suggestions? I liked the 10 speed I had when I was younger but with the urban paths I'm taking, I think I'd like to stick with a more rugged mountain bike. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
