An avid road biker years ago (30! holy sh*t) I have found myself getting interested in road biking again.
I still have an old Rex Criterium in the garage but technology has changed in a big way and am looking to get current and not exceed my needs. I have a cabin on the Blue Ridge Parkway and look forward to riding the parkway (in select areas) in the near future. I realize this is a big topic but any thoughts about what I need to get would be appreciated.
I am about 180lbs somewhat fit, but I am expecting I may feel different about my perceived fitness level after a long climb.
