Hello from beautiful, sunny Sacramento

Hello,
When I was a kid I lived in the country and rode Huffy mountain bikes around the neighborhood.

Since moving here to Cali, I'm hoping to start biking as a hobby, and for commuting around (the bike is a lot less expensive than a second car). It feels good to be outside in the fresh air, enjoying the fresh weather, and getting some much-needed exercise.

I picked up this hybrid bike on Craigslist. I've put on smaller tires because I really like speed, but I'm re-considering. Fat tires feel safer. Maybe I should get a second bike?

Hey rg,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Bike is looking good.

It can be fun experimenting with different tires.
