Cycling/Cyclers on L4P?
recently getting back on the bike to try and stay fit, didnt want to overwhelm myself so i picked up this GT Passage Fitness Bike to gradually get me back up to speed, figured if i keep at it and out grow the bike, i can always pick up something "better" later down the line, and if i decided not to go on with it, i wont end up with a very expensive paper weight
and just like most of you, i cant keep anything "stock" so after 3 weeks of riding, i decided to swap out the silver wheels and handle bar set for a set of BLACK ones, gives the bike a more aggressive look IMHO
anyway if any of you in socal want to do a couple of fun runs feel free to Pm me, i like to cruise the beach and hit a few easy trails when i have the time
on to the pics (excuse the messy living room )
this is the bike stock

Cool, good job on the desire to get back into shape. I too will be pursuing that goal on my 'Discovery Channel' Trek. Working rotating 12 hr shifts is hard, but I just need to put my mind to it.
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

I started road biking last summer, dropped 2k on a Felt F75 and more spandex than I ever thought I'd own, and am now riding about 100 mi per week. Have lost 20 lbs since January and am quickly getting into the best shape of my life. There's no rush like flying down the road at about 40mph on tires that are less than an inch wide.The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.

If you want to last at this at all you'll ditch that squishy seat asap! While on the surface it looks soft and will be more comfortable, after about 10miles you will want something firm that isn't going to chafe your... yeah.
Buy some dedicated cycling shorts with the chamois, they even have some that look like cargo shorts so you don't feel like a homo. In the end your end will feel 10000x better.
Those squishy seats are fine if you're just peetering around the beach but if you intend to actually work it is just going to cause problems.

^^What anon just said gets a +1 from me.
If it goes well for you in the next few months, I would be willing to bet that by summertime, you have given up upgrading this guy and just upgraded to a higher end bike.
I've contemplated biking across Canada. It is on my list of things to do in the next 5 years.
