Ouch. I'm not usually one to criticize anyone else's bike - I can have fun on the cheapest of bikes, but this one's a bit odd looking. I suspect that if you swap the captain's stem for a proper one, and a decent set of bars, that would be a good start. The stoker stem needs to be flipped over have a low rise MTB bar installed too. That will do wonders for comfort and help you get away from the 80's "Stoner bike" look. Any decent bike shop should be able to hook you up with a used stem and bars. Of course, I'm only offering my opinion. Mechanically, as long as it shift and stops, you should have plenty of fun riding on the road, bike paths, or very smooth dirt paths. Is it Shimano or Suntour equipped?
