I am an older, 50, rider, just starting to take riding seriously. Because of my younger brother's cancer, I got involved in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training for the Lake Tahoe Century Ride.
My bike is only about 6 years old, but is so "old school" compared to my teamates. I wonder if I am being hampered by the lack of adjustments - particularly minute ones - that were not available on older bikes that are now available.
Shoul I get a new bike? Spending $2K for a new bike right now does not appeal to me.
I have a 2000 Specialized Sirrus road bike - 58cm - I am 6' and weigh 260, and very strong.
Any advice would be helpful.
