New member from Weston, FL

Just thought I'd introduce myself and say hi. Trying to get back into good riding shape (as much as possible at my age of 65). I ride a classic Merlin Extralight that I built over 20 years ago and it looks like the day I built it.

Hey ZX9mal,

Welcome to Bike Forums from a 71 y/o Texas road rider.

Do those wheels jar your teeth loose?

Welcome from another Florida rider, the Merlin is neat looking, good build. You should join us in the 50+ Forum, it is just for us old guys to have some common interests discussions and great ride reports, it is my home, here. We have a good southeastern US Regional Forum in order to connect with others in our areas for rides and other cycling activities. Stick around and make your self at home.

Bill
