OK, hereís the deal.
At 60 years. . .and having been in the saddle since age 8. . .Iím loosing all those smooth mount/dismount moves. Itís to the point that Iím doing the "Artie Johnson" about twice per month.
The problem is that with a bike properly adjusted for efficient spinning, duration-in-saddle, and knee health; the saddle [all of a sudden like!] seems too high to set a stable foot down.
Yeah, Iíve got the usual age-related whatís-its [arthritis, blood pressure, couple of pounds], but remain strong, cheerful, and determined. . .except that I SUDDENLY need a bike with two stem positions. . .changeable on-the-fly!
Thing is, I adore my small stable of thoroughbreds and their athletic performance under me. Iíd hate to give them up for a comfort geometry.
Iím asking you lads and lassies if youíve encountered the issue and how you handled it.
Like my gran'mammy said, "Dis' here gittin' old ain't no tea wid' da' Queen."
