    New Paltz NY Greetings

    I'm back to cycling after taking time for career and family; good to find a forum where I can ask questions...
    I have a circa 1988 Bianchi Alante I bought new and kept up, but I'm hearing from the Bike Experts that, just 'coz it's "old" I should deep-six it for something new.
    I want to start riding greater distances- opinions? Thanks for the soapbox!

    Hey there Wally,

    Having the 1988 Bianchi makes you a natural for Classic & Vintage. Wanting to ride greater distances - Long Distance. Both have a lot of people who were away from riding and came back to it after many years. It's almost an epidemic.

    Cheers,

    Z
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Come over to C & V and hang with us. We will be able to convince you that there's nothing wrong with the Alante.

    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
