I ride because I enjoy it and for the side benefit of better health.
My bike is more of an entry level, so if it's considered a little heavy then that's a plus for a better workout.
I don't think...

Nothing wrong with what you did, but like some others have said that with a frame swap you will have one really nice bike! It will also give you a chance to tinker a little more!

The 38's should be a good compromise for what type of riding you do. The 28's may not fare as well on rough dirt/sand/shale that may not always be hard packed.

From what you've written you are beyond the dept. store bike, and have become a more dedicated rider.
No need to dump money into that old bike as it will not amount to anything but putting lipstick...

I've been riding just about daily for the past 19 years and I've had to make adjustments to compensate for my aging body several times along the way.

You can do all you can do, but one thing is a constant and that is the car/truck always wins.

This is a good example of why you should try out several bikes before you buy. It goes a long way in preventing buyers remorse.

Same here!
It's not that I'm knocking it, but ​SOME of us older folk have enough trouble staying upright on a bike.

I ride my local greenway loop that follows the creek beds. It's low with thick stands of trees and brush so the wind is really never a factor.

It's a pure joy for me to get on my bike and ride it.
I don't think it matters if it's a dept. store bike or one of those $10,000 holy grail bikes. If you enjoy what you ride who should care?

Since you probably won't be riding to work in a full kit or entering into any races I'd suggest a hybrid model such as the Trek FX mentioned earlier.

I grew a full beard about ten years ago but I try to keep it trimmed so it doesn't slow me down too much, or risk getting it caught in the chain.

Only snobites I've ever run into worked in the bike shop. Seems like that's a prerequisite for employment!

22 miles is a long ride for someone that hasn't ridden in a while. 8-10 would have been plenty for what shape he seemed to be in.
Hope you didn't scare him off!

I cut about 1/2" off the ends of my handle bar. It made a world of difference in personal comfort.
