    Another total newbie from Brooklyn (Williamsburg/Greenpoint)

    Hey people,

    New to the forum. Somewhat of a noob with bikes as well. Used to love riding BMX's as a kid, of course, but it had been about 10 years since I'd even gotten on a bike, until this week.

    Purchased a banged up, beat up mountain bike just to get the feel of it at the beginning of the week... see if I liked getting on a bike again... fell back in love with bikes!

    Loved it so much, that I bought a second-hand 1980's SainTropez 10-speed TONIGHT and took it for a midnight spin. Felt great, though a bit daunting. Need to learn how to work those friction shifters.

    Good thing Greenpoint and Williamsburg are relatively flat haha

    Guess I'll hit it again tomorrow. Probably ride it around McCarren Park, out of danger, till I get a better feel for those shifters

    Welcome to Bike Forums. Wow, two bikes bought in one week - you're definitely addicted!
