    Full Circle.....

    Greetings and salutations!!!

    My name is Jimmy ;and I was raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. I currently live in Baltimore.

    I'm new to this forum, and I have a somewhat long-winded reason-but I'll keep it short:

    I decided recently that I wanted to lose a little weight; and one of the things I wanted to do was resume riding a bicycle. After some bull sessions with my nephew; I briefly toyed with the idea of buying a Sting-Ray "like I had when I was a kid". My first bike, the one I learned to ride on, was a red Jr. Sting-Ray.....and later I inherited my brother's yellow one. (Both single-speed coaster brake models). I quickly dismissed the idea after a check on e-bay to see what they were going for.




    So; imagine my surprize when I was perusing Craigslist at work-it was a really slow day, and I saw a red Sting-Ray for the whopping low pice of "make offer". This was one of those situations where I really couldn't afford it,and had no business doing it, but I called the number and just said "I'll take it" I got it for $100.00, brought it home, put air in the tires, and have been riding it ever since. (The intial call was made last Thursday)


    Oh,and the kicker? It's the exact same color as my first one.

    Some things really are just meant to be.


    Now; I want to talk to as many people as I can that are involved with this; because I'm going to keep riding for my health,for my wallet,and for my sanity.


    I look forward to the fun!!!
