....that is trying to put 3 kids (all girls) thru college and pay for one of their weddings and can't afford high priced bike stuff so has to ride a Schwinn 10-speed? It's a nice 1973 Schwinn Continental but it's still a 10 speed. I used to ride a lot in high school and just started back into cycling this past fall and am shocked by the high prices of bikes and gear. I'd like to ride in some local races and tours but kind of embarrassed riding up on a 10-speed. Anybody else fall in my catagory out there? Have a wonderful day.
