I'm a newbie here although the last time I biked was the '80's. I'm just getting back into cycling trying to manage my weight and diabetes (just diagnosed a few months ago). I've already lost 13 lbs and hope to loose another 5.
I have an '80's Guerciotti (50 cm) sitting in the garage and cleaned it up and was going to ride it but the geometry is all wrong for my 50+ year old body now.
So I started shopping for a new bike and got this 2011 Trek 2.1 (47 cm). So far I'm pretty happy with it but added a new Williams System 19 wheelset and new tires.
I'm a short asian dude so the bikes are on the small side
