Haven't gone biking in probably 20 yrs, but would like to do a little, again, for some light exercise.
Would have to be light, as am now in my 70's.
Have a 20 yr old, possibly more, Fuji bike.
Pretty much the regular, normal, looking style.
Road type, Not a Mountain bike style.
Think the frame is steel ?
The tires are the narrow road style.
a. I can't read the psi inflation info on the side.
I seem to remember about 90 psi.
Does this sound about right.
b. The bike is really heavy. Steel frame, probably.
Are the new Road bikes, certainly not not "racing" bike styles,
meaningfully lighter ?
How about the Mountain Bike styles; significantly lighter ?
c. Guess I should also get a helmet.
Was in Sports Authority, and saw a Giro "Indicator" model for
about $ 35.
Is this a good brand ? The reviews in Amazon for the Indicator model seem a bit mixed.
Would really want as light a weight as possible, and not any more than about the $ 35.
Other suggestions, and opinions would be most appreciated ?
And, let me ask this also, please:
The wheel hubs on this old Fuji being threaded on both ends to take a nut.
Certainly doesn't appear to be hollow.
Would like to get a Quick-Release cam for the front wheel.
I see they all seem to use "skewers," and use a hollow axle.
Any quick release cam mechanism available for just a threaded, non-hollow, axle ? Any other possibilities without having to buy new wheels ?
