I am 61 tomorrow and just got back to riding my old bike a few weeks ago. I told myself that if I could ride it several times a week for a month or two I would look at new bikes. Well after getting it out of the shed behind the lawn mower and beating the rust off the chain, lubing up the cables buying new tires I have rode it nearly every day. I am really enjoying it even with the 90+ temps. Now I discover that the front fork is nearly rusted in too I am going to Wichita Falls tomorrow to see what I can find. I see they have Giant bikes and since we live in a small town we have paved streets with assorted pot holes, highways and miles and miles of unpaved roads. I was wondering if the Roam or Roam 2 would be a good choice. I like riding on the back roads but my old 10 speed with 26" X 1 1/4" tires is kinda exciting sometimes and I would like something a bit more sure footed. I also like to go as fast as I can on good roads. I doubt I will make many rides over 20 miles even if I do get back in good enough shape to do so. What do you think?
