Hi from nj

I just decided to buy a new bike after not biking for a few years. I mostly decided because I need a way to get around since I do not have my license yet. I will be living off campus at school, so I need a way to get there. I ended up buying a Diamondback Insight 1 after trying to find a bike on Craigslist for 2 months. I knew not to get a bike that is too expensive and will lock it up well. I think it gives me a good cross training opportunity because I am a runner. This site has already helped a lot with the research into what I need, so I figured I might as well join and have some helpful posts of my own.

Welcome Wildcat,
I just joined this summer too. Looking forward to riding my new recumbent.

Hello Wildcatnj, the Insight isn't a bad bike at all, and it is indeed cheap enough so that you don't have to worry too much if it gets stolen (although, of course, that would be a bad thing ).

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
