Welcome to BF. I would have that Schwinn checked out by your local bike shop if I were you. I have read horror stories about how bad the assembly/components can be.

Welcome Tom. I too am 33 and am getting back into biking by doing part of my commute on it. I gained about 10-15 lbs. when I stopped biking part of the commute, I aim to lose it again.

I'm riding a folding bike now, but will probably switch to a stiffy soon. It isn't worth the trouble on the other end to bring the folder on the train.

Lots of folks here have high-end bikes. But you don't need one to enjoy a good bike ride or have a more healthy commute.
