Bike newbie from FL (pic warning)
What's up everybody,
I'm brand new to biking, that is, besides childhood. I'm a Psych student at Florida State and decided to start pedaling my way around since my old mustang is getting too expensive to maintain through college. Its been less than a month, and I'm officially addicted to biking.
I bought a 1980's No-name Cierra Road bike from a non-profit bike shop for $90 and have already starting modding it and fixing some problems. I basically ride about 3-4 miles a day back and forth to school, and am starting to gather parts to build my girlfriend a hybrid so we can ride together.
My dad is building a sweet long distance bike in Jacksonville, and my brother rides his to work everyday in Orlando.
I used to work a lot on my car - all the time- so i have a good mechanical background and can't seem to leave things as is.
I have added fenders, new brakes, a bike computer and of course a U lock. I plan to replace some missing spokes, get new grip tape, fix some shifting issues, and hopefully replace much of the rusty hardware. Here's a couple of mine
and 1 to show my dad's (in progress)
(Not my ride^)
