    A standard Newbie requirement is that you post a photo of your bike for our review & acceptance.
    More than one bike will score you more points.

    Get a vintage bike off Craigslist.

    (p.s.... Cheektowaga born & raised )
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I'm actually purchasing a Schwinn Madison from Bert's Bike and Sports, located right in Williamsville on transit right across from the Eastern Hills Mall.

    Regardless of what you buy, what's really important is that you ride!

    And I plan on it! As soon as I purchase it, I'm going on riding sprees. So excited.

    Welcome Dan! Fellow Buffalonian/noob to the site here.


    On a side note, I was looking at bikes from Berts and the cheapest one I liked was about $419. Since I'm on a budget I picked up an old schwinn of craigslist, cleaned it up, put some new parts on it, and now I've got a great road bike for under $100 total invested. Just some food for thought.
