Biking again after a long time

Hi group, I'm new and finally back into biking! Down here in Jax, FL. What got me back to biking was buying a used Schwinn for about $40 about 2 years ago. It was too large and started to need too much repair. So I finally started shopping around and shocked about how expensive good bikes are! So I decided on a Windsor hybrid from bikedirect but bought it at a bike shop already assembled and tuned. And now I'm out biking almost every day. Went to a park and two people said "nice bike". That's always great to hear. And know I now much more about types of bikes, etc.
Mike

Welcome to Bike Forums Mike from west central Florida. Glad you found a nice bike. We have a few Jax members on here. Stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals.
