Hello flagrl,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

So good to have you join up.

I started riding on $15 bike. Put 1500 miles on it.

What bike do you pedal?

Hello flagrl. I lived in Gainesville for some time while in grad school. I just left a 41 mile ride in Chiefland, Tour de Melon to return and rehab in my Ft Lauderdale home. There are needs and there are wants. Right now stick to the need for your bike, the wanted 2wheeler will come in time.

How do? I ride for transport and recreation in Ye Olde Ville of Gaines as well... about 20mi. a day. from the NE side to the interstate and vice-versa. I too started on a cheapo bike, but now I'm on something nicer... it only takes time.
