    Thanks for all the welcomes.
    I just got back from my after work ride. It's a beautiful day in north east Ohio!
    I was riding my 50th birthday present from my wife, a new Trek F/S EX8 mountain bike.

    Now if I could only find a mountain.

    Another mountain biker to help hold the walls against the horde of roadies here. And, its a very nice one too. Your wife clearly has good taste.

    Have you thought about using clipless pedals yet....................................

    I've used clipless on my road bikes but use "power straps" and platforms on my mountain bikes.
    I like to be able to put my foot down quickly if and when I have to.

    I guess I must be 9 today if I rode my age!
    I don't think it would be a good idea to head back out now.(three glasses of wine and it's getting dark)
