    Hello from Iowa

    Good morning all. I'm a diy-er father who has recently gotten the bicycling bug. Its really my kids fault, I caught the "disease" by fixing their x-mart bikes. I'm hoping to do some training in the remainder of this year and next year and try some of Ragbri in 2010. For now I have a 15 speed schwinn comfort bike, but I have been looking at the Treks and Giants @ my LBS. Maybe next year if my personal economy picks up.

    Anyway, this is a great site. Keep up the great work, I'll be lurking...lol

    Welcome to happiness on a bike.
    Keep looking for a used bike that fits you.
    Craigslist is a good place.

    Welcome to Bike Forums. Check out the Long Distance forum for tips on training for RAGBRAI.

    Here is my current clunker. Like the custom diy upholstered saddle? (material stolen from broken lawn chair...lol)

    I've test rode a Trek 7.2 FX and I really like it, but wish it had more speeds. Although I'm looking for a craigslist special to save some dough...

    Anyway great site thanks in advance for all the info/advice!!

    I have to admit, that's a creative upholstery job on the saddle! If it works and it's comfortable, that's all that counts.
