Major Newbie - haven't been on a bike in 20 years. Just bought a old Miyata trailrunn
What they say is true -- "you never forget how to ride". I was a bit wobbly but no problem.
Even though I have an old road bike that is way older than 20 years, while looking at the cracked rubber tires, I decided I needed something more current. I bought a stock Miyata TrailRunner with an aluminum frame yesterday. I think it's circa 1993. At least the original owner says it's 15 years old. Everything on this bike seems to be Shimano Deore LX.
I plan on staying on the road mostly and I want to commute to work on the days that I don't have to run errands and pick the kids up. That is the plan but I have a habit of going into things full out. I will try to avoid what I call "the mod bug" as much as possible and keep the bike stock, except I'm already thinking of replacing the tires with something more appropriate for road use maybe some fenders…
I'll be posting in the appropriate sub forum asking for more info about my bike. Here is a picture of the bike.
