Newbie in Texas
Hey everyone. Just picked up a new bike and went for my first ride in about 15 years. I've been trying to loose some weight, although I've lost 32lbs from dieting alone, I figured I needed to get some exercise too. I didn't have a lot of money to spend so my bike may not be the greatest, but it will get me going until I can save up for something better.
Welcome to Bike Forums.
You will soon look and feel much better.
The equipment is not the focus; enjoying the ride. I wish you continued success on your goal.
Hello Stephen, I am a bit south of you and I am getting a new (new to me) bike for the same purpose... What did you end up buying? Where in the Panhandle are you located?
Thanks for the welcome. I bought a GMC Denali 700c from the local blue box store. I believe it's made by Kent Bicycles. I work in Amarillo, but live about 45 minutes North.
I have met road riders on Denali's.
