greetings. brand spankin' forum newbie here from VA

hello all.
I am about to sell my vehicle and go bike-only for the second time in my life.
the first time only ended because I lived 2-4 blocks from work for several years and
it was just as quick to walk... them had my bike vandalized/destroyed on the lock soon thereafter.

a mixture of extreme poverty and utter disgust with the petroleum industry coupled with
my recent realization of how remarkably better I feel having made it a habit to walk my dogs 5 miles a day has brought bike transportation back in my mind as an exciting option again.

unlike before, I have no go-to people locally for advice or parts, so Im hoping to get the
advice here, and buying a new bike hopefully soon- since whats left of the old one was really
too small for me anyhow.

wish me luck!
