    Welcome to TwoSpoke. Hope your stay here is pleasant and that you find what you are looking for in a forum. I think you'll like it here.

    There's nothing wrong with your bike. If it gets keeps you riding it's just as good as any high end bike. Enjoy the rides and the stay.

    Awesome! I use to do both but found I am a road cycling junkie so my love has been thrown at that for the past almost two decades.

    Well, I say whenever you have questions post away. Great people here who will answer your questions or make suggestions without flaming members like some forums that I will not name. This truly is a very friendly place to be and credit goes to the admin staff and all.

    Have fun in the meantime and as I say, ride it like you stole it!

    If the bike does what you want it to do right now, it is the right bike for you right now. If later, you want a bike to do more or do something else .... you will get that bike or bikes.

    I spent years commuting daily on bikes I literally pulled out of the trash and refurbished with parts from other bikes I pulled out of the trash. Bike snobbery is comical to me, because back in the day, I rode bikes other people literally found unworthy of riding .... but I got wherever I had to every day, and really enjoyed it.

    That bike looks like it is decent shape. You could probably get a lot of miles/years/smiles out of it.

    I particularly like the color. Also, the somewhat understated decals don't mess up an otherwise very attractive paint job.

    Late to the thread, but welcome, EtowahDakota! I like the looks of your ride. Moreover, any bike is better than no bike at all. Ride the wheels off it, and have fun doing so. Your mind and body will thank you.

    Welcome! Keep those cranks spinning.
