    Hey Y'all

    Just found this site as I've recently begun researching bikes. Looks like loads of good info which I'll hafta spend some time sorting through.

    As I get started, are there any good FAQs to help sort out the wheat from the chaff? (like, is a bike with a suspension really helpful for comfortable riding/cruising or just fluff?) If so, that'll help me keep from boring the regulars with the same old questions that a poorly worded search didn't find!

    Me? I'm 54 and could use a bit of exercise. I have young kids who really want me to ride with them! (ages ~6 and ~8). So I think I'm sorta looking for a hybrid . I haven't ridden in years and find the sport has... changed!

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO

    Welcome. I'm 60. Click on the bikes listed in my sig (below) to see my ideas for "comfort" bikes.

    Hope those youngsters don't beat you too badly.
