Hi all. I'm 66, single and retired. My car was stolen and totaled
by joyriders in Feb. Because it could happen again, I decided not
to replace but to see if a bike was manageable after 50 years
of little exercise. This was complicated by a 'minor' stroke I had
in '98 and haven't fully recovered from yet.
But I'm confident the task is doable. Mainly because of a new diet
I discovered 4 years after the stroke. http://www.primaldiet.com
I believe in it's teachings as gospel. It has already shown much
improvement in my condition but for various reasons, none good,
I have been unable to consume the quantities needed to recieve
the full benefits. Yet. But I still believe it will happen.
Meanwhile, the bike experience has been somewhat mixed. The first
one was a mtb. At 50+lbs, it didn't take long to pine for something
lighter. A 30lb 70's Fuji Arcadia solved that and put the mtb in the
closet. Since then I've read most of the related posts here trying to
decide what next? It's obvious to me that a road bike is not strong
enough for my needs. A mtb is but was too heavy.
Would appreciate all advice and opinions any member would be kind
enough to offer. Unless strongly discouraged, I will buy it. Features
needed are light weight and strength for pulling a bike trailer. Both are
solved here with 4 bonuses. New, brand name, disc brakes and a
super low price. What do the members think?
