Thinking about getting in to bicycles..

Hello everyone, new to the site and have been reading a lot on here. Lot of great posts and it's amazing how passionate people are about their bikes.

I've ridden bikes all my life... but just a down the street, down the beach ride. Not really as a sport.

I just inherited 2 original 1984 720 Treks that have been sitting in a warehouse where my Dad was just forced to retire from. Everything is original on it and Iím contemplating either restoring them or upgrading them and then maybe taking them on the road. Maybe even the possibility of commuting.

Just a new hobby Iím thinking of picking up and making new adventures in my life which would benefit both my health and the environment

Those are great bikes; I own a 1983 Trek 720. You should post pics of your bikes in the classics and vintage section. Those bikes will get a lot of love there. Make sure to show the drive side and pics of a lot of details.

This is a great hobby. Have fun!
