New guy to the world of cycling.

I'm in it for the fitness aspect and social side. This seems to be a good community with people from all walks of life. If you have tips for me I'll gladly take them.

As far as my ride, its a silly box bike schwinn that I'm waiting for the shop to build, just dropped off the box today. (a week seems a bit long for a 1-2 hour assembly)

2ed bike, or, my first real bike will be a trek at the start of next year. Advice is welcome!

Hybrids seem to be what I'm drawn to, street seems... Uncomfortable and a little too intense for me lol.

Can't wait to dive in and see what this community is all about!

Welcome to BF! Before you make a purchase, I’d suggest spending some time cruising good local bike shops and doing some window shopping and information gathering. There are road bikes these days that rival hybrids for comfort. A good LBS should do a good job of matching your body, budget and intended riding uses/styles with a good bike for you.
