Great Site !!! New Jersey Newbie ...

Hello everyone i live in central NJ and found this great site recently.

I'm 63 yrs of age and haven't biked much since a kid. The wife and i were in Cape May last fall and rented a couple bikes for the day. It was a blast and great exercise. On the way home, 3 hrs, we dicided to buy our own and see where it takes us.

With minimum research i bought a couple of Schwinn Midmoors from Amazon ( i know, I know ), assembled them ( yep, i can handle that) and off we went. A few nice entry level trails near home and one 24 mile ride on the Henry Hudson Trail and we're hooked. We are heading out to bike Delaware River Canal Trail and Lehigh Gorge Rail-Trail (pa) asap.

Great fun and exercise with the wife and this 250 lb 6'0' body, wife in great shape btw .

I'm starting lengthy research on our next bikes, 95% paved trails and safe roads. The amount of info on this forum is great but makes my head spin at times.

Leaning toward the 7.4 FX or the 7.5 FX (2011 not 2012) maybe the Giant Escape 0, same quality bike for the both of us. Buying from LBS of course.

btw ... gonna keep the midmoors, they work fine.
