So, yeah, I'm older and just got back into bikes. I need exercise, fun, and after I retire I ain't payin' no fricken four or five bucks for a gallon of gas.
I used to be a wally world biker and that was ok, years ago. But I saw an old Cannondale in a secondhand store a week ago and bought it.
I'm technology impaired. My sons come over and help if my computer has a problem.
But I decided that this was MY bike and I was going to learn about it. I've already replaced the chain, and raised the handlebars a little I can't believe I did it. (The hardbody behind the counter at the local bike store couldn't believe I was going to do it, lol)
This is going to be the 'practice' bike, I didn't give much for it and so I have no qualms about taking it apart in order to put it together again. I am maybe going to get a nice one, once I know what I'm doing.
Pleased to make your acquaintance
Oh yeah, and I've got this 'if you give a mouse a cookie' thing going on too. I bought (secondhand, I'm watching the budget) a bike car carrier and an indoor bike rack as well as a few miscellaneous bike tools. I can see how this can become an obsession, no?
