Be very scared!
Hello, my name is David, and I'm a long-time casual cyclist from (South) Philadelphia. I commute short distances, and ride a beautiful Kelly Drive/Forbidden Drive/Valley Green (40 miles or so) loop whenever I get a chance. I rode a Specialized Crossroads hybrid from 1993 until recently, when it's rear wheel was stolen. I decided to get a refurb'd '90-91 Schwinn Voyageur rather than replace the hybrid's wheel since it's drive set etc. are so worn. I also want to do some touring eventually. Pretty happy with my new bike so far!
Great forum here, and I've done a lot of reading here in the last few days.
