introduction for Papy

Hello everyone,
I am 48. I feel like I have been riding all of my life. Is for fun, not competively. My wife and I have Schwin beach cruisers. Recently I saw bicycle at a local pawn shop. It is a Trek 4300. Yes, it does need a little work. I am going to replace the caliper brakes with disc brakes. New times and tires. Both cassettes look good. I will replace the chain and all of the cabling. Our should not take that long and the purchase price was only $55.00. I could not pass that up. We have lots of trails near us and I look forward to exploring our tiny piece of this great big puzzle,Earth.
