Hi Every one, I'm a green horn to multi-speed bikes , plus haven't rode a bike in 50 years and that was an old Schwinn single speed . Since moveing from TX to be with my sweetie have seen oddles of bikes & my lady had an old Roadmaster 15 speed that I cleaned up . Been surfing the forums trying to find friendly ones that kick me out since I haven't a quality bike. Figured start with a clunker & if I can master the gears & can ride with King Arthor joint aches , will up grade next spring to another Schwinn . Craiglest here has several Calenties & Cross Cuts that sound good. Think this forum looks begainer friendly more than a bunch that are out there. Thank you'll , fair winds & ride safe .
