    Brand new to MBiking!

    Hello everyone! Brand new MBiking, and I must say I am very excited, I originally wanted a bike just to ride with my 5 year old, but as I started researching, I realized that this could actually be a wonderful way for me to get out of the house, and get it great shape! I am 27 6'0 190lbs, and actually in pretty decent shape to begin with, but I just bought a bike off ebay, and was wondering if any of you can give me some info as to if I made a good choice. Thanks.

    Here are the specs. I know its a singlespeed, but after researching a bit I think it will be the best choice for me. BTW I got the bike for 250 bucks..

    Specialized S-Works Hardtail M2 SingleSpeed frame (20.5” - XL) with a Surly rigid fork. Components are all modern parts and include: Mavic 717 rims, laced with butted spokes and alloy nipples to XT hubs. Specialized “The Captain” folding 2Bliss tires*. FSA seat post, bars*, stem, and sealed bearing headset. Shimano LX crank with RaceFace outer guard*. Surly Singleator*. Deore V brakes, and a Selle Italia Titanium saddle. Specialized Enduro grips*. 36/18 gearing.
