Hi From Oneida, NY!

Just wanted to pop in here and say Hi!

My name is Jason and I've been riding on and off for a few years now but haven't got serious about it until recently.

Basically, in 2005 I decided I wanted to get in better shape, so I went out and bought myself a Diamondback Wildwood cruiser bike from Dick's that has been my only bike (until recently). But after I went through a stressful time and gained a lot of weight to where I wasn't able to haul myself up hills anymore, I slowly stopped riding.

Cut to this year. I've lost 60 pounds since January and I'm getting myself back in shape. My wildwood was in need of some serious maintenance and repair (shifters were shot and not holding the bike in gear without constant pressure from me. And honestly I wasn't really good at keeping up with bike maintenance on that sucker), so instead of getting it fixed up I decided that I was going to get serious about riding.

A trip over to the local bike store and I fell in love with a 2012 Specialized Sirrus Sport which I purchased and over the past week and a half, have put a smidge over 100 miles on it.

Looking to hang around here to get tips on proper maintenance and best practices for riding. Trying to learn as much as I can
