I not sure where you posted your earlier 3000+ posts but if it was Road Cycling, you'll find everyone a little nicer around here.

Congrats. But 50 isn't "old, slow and about to fall apart" You have at least 15 years ahead of you of making a TdF team!

Good thing about this place is that you can stay as long as you want - no limit to the size of '+' in 50+.

Welcome aboard the 50+ asylum, with that many posts already, you are hardly a new guy, no matter about that one here. A belated Happy Birthday, also. Now, how about some pics of you and the bicycle, to satisfy the voyeurs we have around the place.
