    n00b in Maryland

    Howdy,

    New member to the forum, but have been searching it for months. I figured I owed you guys the $12 from the wealth of information I have found on here! Anyhow Iím sort of a n00b to bicycling. I grew up with your average BMX Mongoose from the 80ís and a 10 speed here or there but never used it for anything more than having fun. Now that Iím older I plan on adding to the fun part by using my bicycle to help me get back into shape. Over the last few years I have been in several severe automotive accidents. I was rear ended twice on a major highway and hit head on once on a major divided interstate Ö yeah interesting to say the least. Since then I have filled out a little bit and I noticed I donít have the endurance or lung capacity I once had. Being a asthmatic and a fairly fit guy (I use to run 6+ miles EVERY day) I just donít feel the same. Now that Iím a little bit older, quite a bit heavier I think the transition to bicycling will give me the excitement I want, the exercise I need, and help me to keep in touch with my friends whom all bought bicycles and are now riding century plus marathons.

    One last thing, please excuse any faux paus I may incur during my initial time here. And thank you for allowing me to tap into this huge wealth of information!

    Put some new tires and tubes on the bike and get it on the road.

    Have fun for now with what you have to ride.
