Lucky find

Hi group, I just stumbled across this site looking for info to fix a friend's mountainbike. One hour later, I'm joining. Probably happened to many of you.
I am 52 and just started riding again after over 10 years off. Never a serious daily rider, but did do an annual century for 8 or 9 years in a row, and did about 1000 to 1200 miles in the spring and summer leading up to each century in the fall. We would ride from PA to Wildwood(south New Jersey) in a private group of 8 to 20 people. 106 miles in about 8 or 9 hours.

Lately, I bought a used Cannondale R800 with all Shimano 105 components on it and am enjoying short road rides out of necessity. First road bike I really used. I had an old Giant AT750 with Biopace crank and Deore group and knobbie tires to ride the centuries! I spent alot of extra energy. Anyhow, good riding to all.
