Nice to be here--Ive learned a great deal from this forum. Just getting back into biking after 30+ years and love it. My primary ride is a Giant OCR Touring that I got to do some road /touring on. My dirt machine is an older ('99) Schwinn Moab 3 thats going to be used in the Georgia/NC mountains. After 4 mos. of steady road work, I can actually walk normally the next day. Lost 20 lbs too. I think I like it!
