I am 77 years old and have been riding horses and bikes since I was 5. My favorite all-time bike was my beloved Fat Chance and I did a lot of 50's and 100's. The boring stuff is years later, I had a back operation, made necessary from enthusiastically lifting lots of heavy stuff and I'm now riding an eMoto Ridge 3. However, I have my eye on a Haike Exduro FS RX 27.5 bike with the Bosch drive. I'm waiting for the Haike to be put on sale in the US. While I am waiting for the wisdom that age is supposed to bring, I welcome the wisdom from you folks in the forum.
