New to the forums - love riding :)

Hi all .. I am new here but I think I have stumbled on a great community here! I like to ride (thought right now there's a snowstorm going on) but soon it will melt (again) and I will be out there in the great outdoors. I live in a town where the Trans-Canada trail goes from one end of the city right thru to the next town over (about a 1.5 hour ride) I'm probably not as seasoned as most of you, I did ride BMX bikes mostly as a kid and owned a few MTBs ... I currently own 3 Mountain bikes .. a crappy Green Shimano hunk of junk I have had for years (I break it out for kicks sometimes but it only has an 18'' frame and I am 6 foot 4 !)

Anyway, I use my bikes to commute across town to work every day when weather permits and also for recreation .. I enjoy taking a day and riding to the next town over and checking out whats going on over there -- small towns though so not much to see other than scenery along the trail LOL

I actually have two pics of my Schwinns ... the Blue 210-FS is my rigidtail I got last year and have put many many many many miles on it .. and the silver 240-DSR I havn't really used yet (winter is just winding down here) -- but I look forward to getting out there again

I forgot to mention .. that trail is not paved once you get out of the parks etc ... it's basically a skinny dirt path for the duration lol .. I think pavement is boring

Unfortunately with the blue one right now I am having a problem with there being some play in the bottom crank bracket .. soon as it gets nice outside I will have to take a closer look ....... I think I need to just adjust the bottom bracket bearings ..
