I've been though a pile of bikes over the last umpteen years. I rediscovered the joy when I bought bikes for my teenage daughters to ride to school. I was overweight and dug out my old trusty Falcon friend whom I had neglected for 15 years. First I was shattered after 100 yards. By the end of 3 weeks I was cycling 6 miles uphill to work but coming home was sheer bliss! Anyways last week I bought my first mountain bike after a lifetime of racers. I can't believe how much I love it. I hope I never lose the love of cycling. It's like being in the real world rather than looking at TV in a car.
Glad I found the Forum...Happy Trails.
