Howdy all! Glad to be with everybody on this forum. It looks like you have just about everything covered here.
Started biking March of this year on a Trek 7.1 hybrid. Max mileage has been been 55. Finally figured out if I want to do much more than that I need to get on a better bike. Looking at a few different Specialized models (Roubiax Compact, Elite Compact).
Some day I want to be able to do a century. (At 52 years old, the sooner the better )
