Greatings from Chicagoland

After 20 years, I'm back in the saddle! I been riding all summer, and I've never felt better! I am nearly 100 lbs. overweight, but I can't wait to ride whenever I get the chance. I've got a mid range - high end Mt. bike that works well for me right now: hydraulic brakes, front suspension with lock-out, slicks and Look pedals. The setup is ideal for someone like me that was a very competent rider 20 years ago. Other than the excess poundage, I'm in pretty good health. My goal is to be back on my 25 year old trek Pro Series 560 road bike by next year!!! Wish me luck!!!!!
