And the wife didn't even mind.
Yep, I took my 23-year-old Trek 700 out for a spin. In its day it was considered a fairly sharp bike. It still has its original campy headset, Sun Tour Superbe brakes, shifters and front derailer. It was my main squeeze bike for more than two decades, but a couple of years ago, I got a modern road bike and kind of let the old-reliable gather some cobwebs.
I was amazed at the plush ride of that fine, old bike. I can't wait to take her out again soon. If anyone is interested, I'll see if I can post some pix.
