While researching for a road bike I found this Forum. Great site with lots of information. I will look forward to learning much from everyone.
Me? I am 55 and coming back to biking after 15 years away from the sport. I bought myself a Trek 1000 (63cm), put on a shorter stem, a water bottle and cage, and a pair of Look pedals, and I'm all set, for now.
Took my first ride today...7.5 miles at about 9.5 miles per hour....boy, am I out of shape!
