New here and haven't been on a bike in a while...
Hello everyone! My name is Jeff. I haven't had a bicycle in a while, but my dad just gave me a Schwinn Ditch 1.0. The chain was pretty rusty and a lot of rust on and around the cassette. I have tried to clean it up as best I can and it needs a little more work to make it clean and fully functional again. It is rideable, but the rear brake doesn't work and its still a little dirty.
I guess I'm at a crossroads though. I would love to start riding for pleasure and more importantly some exercise. I have bad knees and I figure this will be less stress on my knees than running/jogging. I don't know if I should keep this bike or try to get something else. I want a decent bike, and am not afraid to drop some cash on a bike. If I do get a new one, I would like to probably get a Trek or a Specialized commuter or hybrid bike.
What do you guys think? Sorry about the long post.
