New to recumbents

Hi. I'm more of a recreational biker who tends to get in and out of it every couple of years. I still own the Nishiki 10 speed I used in the late 70's and 80's, as well as the GT RTS3 Mountain Bike I bought in the early 90's. Recently, because my badly out of shape 53 yr. old neck, back, and butt couldn't take the mountain bike for any length of time, I purchased a Bacchetta Agio recumbent which has rekindled the sport/hobby for me. I'm hoping some regular riding will help me loose weight and get in better shape. So far, so good.

Welcome aboard!

Feel free to drop by our recumbent forum, and definitely drop by Classic and Vintage! Be prepared for posting pics of that vintage Nishiki as well!

Tom foretold what I was going to say...he is absolutely correct, we'd love to see photos of that Nishiki in the Classic & Vintage forum.

He knows I have quite a collection of Nishikis going .

Welcome to BF!
