Hi folks, I am 55 now and had not ridden for about 20 years. Doc told me I needed to lose weight, get some cardio, etc. and so I dusted off my old Trek 800 mountain bike and started riding about two months back. Weight is coming off and I feel a lot better. Now the problems start. I went to the local bike shop to get an odometer, and got into a long conversation with the owner. He's about my age and he showed me a Cannondale Quick 3 hybrid bike. Price is kind of high, around $800.00, but I can't stop thiking about how a new lighter bike would make riding more enjoyable for a young fellow like myself. I guess my question would be, is that a good bike for a 55 year old guy to ride, mostly on the roads and bike trails? By the way, I also have a Schwinn Super Sport sitting down in the basement. I got it when I was about 14, which would make it about a 1969 model. Tires are dry rotted, but it is complete and in pretty good shape except for the usual scratches and a little rust. I've been thinking of restoring this, but not really as a daily rider, just as a nice piece of my past to take out on a spin every now and then. So that's my story, and I hope to become a regular poster on the forum.
