In younger days, I went nowhere without my bike. Marriage, business, kids to college, and some health issues let me stray for many years. A brief resurgence in the late 80's saw me acquire a Diamondback Ascent on which I commuted to work in Silicon Valley. Then a new life, a new wife and again I strayed. Recently I felt the need to ride again. I dusted off the Diamondback, rode several miles the first day, and haven't missed a day's ride since. Its been so long since I rode and maintained a bike and I'm sure I'll have some questions. I look forward to your educated responses.
