Any bikers out there?

I just picked up a Vilano Forza 4 from a guy I know at a rock bottom price and am excited to get back into riding (used to ride 50-75 miles a week on the mountain bike) and am just curious how many others are out there that utilize 2 wheels and peda power to get around when not cruising in the jeep?

I have all of my camera gear packed up for a wedding I'm shooting later today but tomorrow I might have some time to take a few of my own pictures of it.

Hi. I have a handful of road bikes. My commuter bike is just a basic aluminum frame Trek, outfitted with a front hub generator light, rear lights and a few other things. It's 23 miles each way to work.

My "down-to-business" bike is a carbon fiber frame Trek, which is about 5 lbs lighter than the commuter. It feels like I'm pedaling air after I've been used to riding the other one for a while. I like to do some long distance group rides and an occasional 24 hour event with it.

That's a nice looking bike. When I was in HS and college I used to ride a late late 60's early 70's schwinn bike, I wish I could remember the model. Continental maybe? It was only a 10 speed but man, 10th gear used to crank. I was never able to out pedal the gear, even down some pretty good sized hills. Anyway I wish I never got rid of it because now I have a trek mountain bike that is too small for me. I will be in the market for a hybrid in the next few weeks. Of you guys have any suggestions please pass them on.

No pedals,yes a bike motorized.Maybe you should add PETALS or BIYCYCLE to your thread title to help others that don't click on thinking MOTORIZED?

I thought it was going to be about motorcycles, too, especially when the title included "bikers", usually a motorcycle term. Since I generally put more miles per year on my pedal bikes than I do on my motor bike I was delighted to join in.

I figured the same too. But either way I have both so I figured it would be good for me.
