45 years old, feel older, back in the saddle about a year now after a lengthy lay off. Overawed by the advancements in bike technology. Chose to go simple, some might say retro, with a steel frame, Bianchi Campoine.
Like the bike, hell, I love the dam thing. Maybe get a more up to date bike in a couple of years but for now, I'm happy just getting out there. Kept the bike stock except new tires, Contis, 4 Seasons which I'm very impressed with. Currently in the market for a new crankset (see post in Mechanics section for more info).
