    Happy birthday to me!

    Yesterday I turned 50. I don't feel any older, and actually feel great for my age

    I can officially post here, though I've been reading here for a while.

    I woke up to an awesome gift from my wife ... a Lynskey R230, with an Easton EA90SL fork.



    I can't wait to start building this bike up ... hoping for a maiden voyage next spring.

    Happy birthday and welcome aboard. I wish my wife had the intuition to buy me a MTB on my birthday.

    I am a Clydesdale as well, at 235lbs. I ride handbuilt Mavic Open Pro wheels currently, and thinking of going the same route for the Lynskey. They're not a light-weight racing wheel, but I'm going for comfort on this new build, not speed.

    Taking my time ... not 100% sure of all components yet. Plus, $$$$. I don't want to use entry level parts on this frame ... and Christmas is coming

    Thanks for the replies ... now moving forward to the next half century mark. 40+ years of cycling has carried me this far.

    9:AM sharp, I'll be there, Mr Fox.

    Happy BD a couple of days ago!


    At your age, maybe you should start looking into recumbent bikes.
