Has anyone else started out on a LandRider Auto Shift Bike? I love mine, but I am sure it won't be a racing bike. But then again I weigh 195 so the frame supports me well. A good choice for now I feel. I never liked the shifting nor understood how to shift. The first bike I had I kept in the easiest gear for a couple of months. It was an older Murray mountain bike that was given to me. It did the job but was a bit small. It was amazing the difference when I got my new bike.
