New to the forums from Atlanta, GA

Hi all,

I'm new to the forums. I got back into riding last summer after dusting off my '88 Schwinn Traveler. I rode that bike a lot from 88 to 92 but since then it had been gathering dust. Put some new tires on it and had a serious rode biking buddy do a tune up on it and it rides fine. Riding it about 30 to 50 miles a week now.

I'm considering buying a new bike which is how I found these forums. Doing a lot of research now about frame types and componnents.

I'm in Atlanta, GA. Late 30's. Married with kids. My 11 year old son loves biking but my 10 year old daughter wont ride.

I have two other hobbies that compete with my riding time: Golf and Banjo.

WElcome to the fourms. There are a few other ATL area riders in here. I'm married w/kids, too, but mine are under 5. They love their trikes!!

I spent a month or so on the forums before buying my new commuter bike. Glad I did...
