Hello from Chicago

Just wanted to drop in and say hi real quick. I'm just getting into cycling at age 40...well, I've always been "into" it but not at a serious level. I've always had regular BMX and mountain bikes etc...It's still more for recreation but maybe just a little to burn off some, if not all, of this extra weight.

I just scored my first ever road bike...a 1988 Schwinn Premis. I've always been drawn to old school Schwinns and this one I could not pass up!

I came here to learn some things and meet some new people. I've already gotten some very valuable info....which is what convinced me to pull the trigger on the Premis.

Good to be here,

John

P.S. I'll get a pic of the bike up as soon as I am able.

Hey John,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Started when I was 65 y/o. Now have 60,000 miles on my old legs.

Keep it fun and safe and you will ride far.

Welcome JohhnyRed76!

Those Premis are a scream. Quite the bang for the buck package Schwinn had, just lost its ground and marketing. Lots of avid enthusiast with them. When you get a chance, highly encourage to post in the forums Classic and Vintage threads.

Also, there's a very active group in the C&V section from Chicago and the surrounding area. Have done a few meet and great rides with them and always a terrific time. Do believe one is coming up at the end of this month.
