Not a high end bike by any stretch of the imagination. But it will allow me to get back into riding on a budget, and see if my heart (legs) is really into it. Cleaned and tuned it up, and taken a few quick spins around my property on it, on a little trail I built for my son to ride his Honda 50 on. So far, it's not bad. Decent cheap spec Shimano rapid fire shifters, and cheap Tektro cable pull discs. Not bad for $100 though.
Welcome back. Check for deals on 29er frames. Ditto with Performance and Nashbar.

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
