Fifty Plus (50+) - Went Old School Today.....
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Took a ride on my 1993 Trek 830 Antelope. I ride this now when I ride with the LOML so I don't have to coast as much. All three of my boys have used this bike through the years. I had to get a new seat post and seat but other than that she is still in decent shape. It's a cell phone pic sorry about the quality or lack thereof. I hit the Nature Trails and had a blast. Since I have started riding again I have lost almost 20 pounds. This has been a load of fun!
Have a great day!

John, your bike still looks great, glad you are riding again and congrats on the weight loss. I managed to drop 29 lbs since March, so far. Feel a lot better, too. Hope you can continue the riding and the good results.

John, congrats on the achievements so far. The old TREK 830's seem to just keep on going.

I had to sell my 1990 830 - I miss it. Was a fun town bike

I sold my Trek820 many years ago and still do not regret it. Got a GT Pantera and don't regret that one going either. Next one was keeper bought in 93 and it is still a good ride---

Congrats on the weight loss. I had an old Mongoose that got me back into cycling. I regret getting rid of it.

Good to see you back on the saddle! Antelopes are a great classic. I have one coming my way if I ever get over there to grab it (free). Fun on trails and in town.
(I ride old bikes, yes even road bikes....I prefer them)
