I had a book due at the local library so I hopped on the ol' bike to see how well the wrench did at the LBS with his 49.99 tune up special. The old machine did pretty good. Felt just as good as some of those new bikes I test rode the other day. It was good to hear the wrench say that she's in good shape for a 13 yr old bike.
I on the other hand I was surprised at what a weeny I became in the past couple years. I use to ride all over town taking pride in my vehicular skills while flipping off cagers. My skinny legs have become jelly and I found myself granny gearing it up the littlest hills......
On the way back home I did notice a small rush of adrenaline and craved riding a little longer but being the couch potato I've become I opted to go home. But I did browse eBay looking over bike things for awhile. after that I came and visited here.
Now slam some pep talk my way boys!
