    20 years ago

    I've just started biking again after a long absence, about 20 yrs. Last summer I borrowed my son's old Fuji
    road bike and went for a spin. It was to say the least very unconfortable but it got me interested in biking again. I bought a bike on 10/07. I would of liked to have gotten a sexy road bike but knowing my limits I purchased a hybred, Giant FCR3. What difference 20 yrs makes, it's a great bike to start with . I'm really enjoying riding and can't wait until the summer to take some longer rides.
    I hope to learn some maintainance from the forum to keep the bike tuned up.

    Hi 6431050, Lisa and I would both point out that just because it's twenty years on doesn't mean you can't enjoy a sexy road bike still!

    Once you get limbered up with the Giant, you could be capable of things you only dream of doing now. Who needs a Fountain of Youth when you have a bike ?

    Welcome to BF!

    Welcome to both of you. But you need to get yourself a goofy or deep/meaningful /significant on-line name. Many of us have already claimed the really choice ones (or stupid ones, depends on your point of view)
    Suzy Creamcheese, what's got into you?

    In my old age (26 years) my memory is not good enough to remember various and sundry aliases. What I lack in creative naming I more than make up for in real life shenanigans.

    You might be able to talk me into an avatar though.....

    PS- I went from not riding for 10-15 years to a hybrid because I thought I was "too old" for a road bike. Less than 2 years later I switched to a road bike. No regrets. Wait until you get good enough to drop your first 20-year old thinking he/she is going to beat the pants off you. Nothing but fun, fun, fun.

    We're a lot of fun, aren't we? You can give yourself a custom title, too, if you'd like.
