I have been looking into getting into (slowly and cheaply...haha...yea...) road biking for exercise. I would for now just be riding around the park (paved) and local streets. I was considering vintage schwinn 10 speed or something I could pick up cheap just to start. Idk, I am a fan of old sk00L stuff haha. My dad used to own a bike shop... Anyway. I can't afford a freakin' trek that costs $$$$ or a cannondale etc etc. I just want a road bike that I can ride for some exercise...the pricier one will come in time (poor college student).
I am 6'0 tall. What should I get for basics? Some shorts? A helmet (I should prolly huh?)
So after reading all of my crappy inserts...what'r the experienced opinions?
