So a quick intro and then my dilemma. So back in the day I was one of the better Duathlete, triathlete around these parts at my peak back in the 90's I weighed 162 Ib's and a 32 min 10k was doable and a 70k ride in the mountains (Okanagan BC) here was a breeze.
So when I was 50 my Harley was more important and I pretty much gave up except for the odd run and cycle. Anyway the Granfondo went by my house the other day and suddenly I have the urge never mind my old training partner who was no better than me back when was 14th over all and ahead of Axel Merckx 25th in over 2000 riders.
So having said that a new saddle, helmet and shoes are on the list. But what about the bike a Gardin which is CM and a combination of Campagnolo, Mavic, Durace, 300 and 105. The derailers are of course friction which isn't a problem.
I'm completly ignorant of what's happened with bikes the last 20 years or so and do my 105 pedals still work with modern shoes / cleats?
If I was to meet some goals I might road race or do a duathlon again so I'm interested in knowing what ya all would you do?
