Hi all from Monroe, MI!

Just bought a used bike a few months ago...and now that I've ghosted the forums and archives for a few minutes, I'm almost embarrassed to say what it is...

Oh, ****. Why not? It's a Schwinn S25, which I bought used at Goodwill for $75.. Go ahead and laugh, but I have a VERY good reason for buying it: THIS is what it's replacing...It's not mine, but it's the same model, in almost the same condition, if not worse: the front derailleur is broken and warped in too many ways to fix anymore, and incredibly, the Schwinn (even with all the heavy and CRAPPY suspension bits) STILL weighs less.
Anyways, was researching some things about my nearly new Schwinn, found this place, and figured I'd drop in and say hey. So...

Hey.

Welcome to Bike Forums.

I started on a $15 bike. Rode it 1500 miles.
Have fun.

The other funny part about the Schwinn? It was still $5 cheaper than the old Huffy when it was bought new.
