My husband and I are very, very new to cycling. We are both overweight, and haven't ridden in probably 20 years, so we didn't want to invest much yet.
I've acquired 3 bikes for next to nothing (2 free, $30 for another) and they're pretty low end.
2 are Roadmaster Mountain Sport SX's (Wal-Mart carries these for about $80 new) and the other is a vintage Raleigh Grand Mesa (The catalog I found says 1985-ish)
They're all in working condition but I'm going to replace the pads for sure.
What else should I be leery about and look into replacing?
I don't have much money in the bicycle budget thanks to my son's private school, so I can't invest much in parts
We will be on a flat, paved surface (Silver Comet Trail in Smyrna, Georgia)
We will probably only ride at most 30 miles a week (Right now, anyway - this could change as we get more into it)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
