Hey there guys! Just a new guy from Missouri here!
Hey guys! I'm from Missouri, USA. After riding bikes around the neighborhood as a kid, I stopped for a rather long time. But at the beginning of May, I decided to get back on a bike. So, I headed down to Wal-Mart thinking I could get a cheap bike that I could use to bike around.. Little did I know, I was making a horrible mistake.

I read around the internet, browsing forums, ******, etc. to learn more about biking and I kept reading how the quality of those department store bikes are so bad. Then, a week or so later (while riding up and down some hills), I find out the bolt that holds the handlebars rigid and stable doesn't do its job despite tightening it as hard as I could!

Fast forward a week or so, after visiting the bike shop, reading some reviews and test riding some bikes, I finally purchased a "real" bike: a Giant Roam.

So, I'm here, making my first post and hoping I can make some new friend and learn a whole lot more about cycling!

Thanks for taking a read! :thumb:
