Greetings from Northwest Florida!!

Hello everyone my name's Ivan and I am from a little place called Fort Walton Beach, FL. I am a former US Marine and I am trying to get my butt back in shape, so I am looking at purchasing a new bike and I thought it would be a good idea to join this forum to meet some people that enjoy riding and to hopefully gain a little knowledge in the process.

I have post asking for a little help to help me decide on the best bike to purchase as a beginner, between a Trek 7.2 FX and a Scott Sub40. Please have a look at what I posted and let me know what you all think. Thanks in advance.
