    I'm sticking with my 1970 bell bottoms. That modern disco crap has no style.

    Depends on the weather here. I started riding about 3 years ago and did my first birthday ride (55 mi) two years ago on a beautiful day that hit a record 83. Had to cancel last year as it never...

    One of the joys of starting out is the rapid improvement in the first few months. Take it slow and make sure you're fit is good. Improper saddle position can be a lot harder on the legs.

    I'm driving as well as ever, but my short game has gone to hell.

    I can't resist the straight line, but it is actually true. And likely due to physical decline of eyesight and nerves. But what...

    Any time spent in jail is punishment and in our society we reserve punishment for those found guilty according to due process of law. It's a good system IMO.

    When I returned to riding, I was wearing regular docker's type shorts with boxers underneath. Worked fine, but I was mostly riding with my wife for 15 miles or so around the neighborhood. When I...

    They did that to a woman here recently. Cost the city half a million though, so it's not a cost effective solution.

    I'm a bit surprised this has gone on so long.

    I'm thinking I might list a noted bridge over in the marketplace forum.

    My spare bike is a converted Bianchi Advantage. It's easier to do if you go with friction shifters.

    I would definitely return it. It might be functional, but it would bother me too much to use it.

    This may well be true, but while I would have felt totally dorky in riding kit 40 years ago, it doesn't faze me at all now.

    It wouldn't make a lot of difference. It would have a relatively small impact on overall worldwide demand and oil is a commodity where supply is contracted to counteract declines in demand (although...

    When I was a kid in the 70s, I don't recall that we knew the term "dork disc". But we knew they just weren't right .

    That's pretty much what I thought. Half might be about 'correct', but I'd be afraid I'd never really be happy with the bike.

    Condition and location are important, but as is (from your description, without actually seeing it) probably $100 - $150 depending on market.

    Sorry to read of the crash, but glad to hear you're mending.

    (I'll be more careful of a few small dogs I take for granted as they've always just run alongside.)

    I find I need a jacket at 55. The cusp of riding with just a jersey is around 60, depending on wind and sun. In January, I need to be chilly the first few miles or I'll be too warm later and the...

    No real plan. Probably ride about 30 miles on a local route. I have a pretty good variety of routes that start from home. This time of year, I pick one that won't finish into the wind.
