Welcome to Bike Forums. I think your wife would enjoy the hybrid section we have here. Maybe she can join too (hint hint) .

So....does your name refer to the Vette? I love muscle cars.

Ooo. But my avatar shows the wheels on my rice burner...

Oh yeah. Trolling is not a good thing. Lurking is.

A typical beginners mistake to use gears too high, resulting in cadence too low, resulting in too much torque on the knees.
Get a bike computer with cadence and keep it over 60rpm, and ideally over 90rpm.

Hi there
Baton Rouge here. I've been on the board here for a couple of years. I don't ride as much as I'd like, but this forum is certainly entertaining
