Hi,

Haven't really rode a bike in ~10 years, but got on one 2 weeks ago and remembered how fun it was. I'm mainly looking to lose some weight and get into better shape. Been looking around the forum at all the helpful information and there is a lot more to cycling than I originally thought, so I decided to join.

@ 1nterceptor: A schwinn varsity that I got for christmas to ride around campus, seems to hold my 250lbs well. Looking to get a better bike with my tax return though.

@10 wheels: Thanks.

@RonH: Will definitely look into that. Thanks
