    I'm 68. I've flown all my missions. I hang with the gang and let the kids do the pulling unless I'm in a group that is very slow.

    I'm old so I don't pull a lot any more but my response to those who contest my lack of pulling is for them to just drop me which they can't do. With age comes wisdom. :50:

    I try to hit the cycle shops at the end of the season to get deals on shorts and bibs. Cycling is expensive but the advances in the last two decades have greatly reduced the discomfort of cycling. I...

    Love the picture. We had a guy that big in the club a few years ago and he never got dropped.

    Well, bikes are well sealed and made to be used outside. They perform better if they are clean so cleaning them is a good idea. A better idea is to cheaply invest in a beater bike that is used...

    You're right about not wanting to get it dirty but I would never put it on rollers or even on my fluid trainer. It's a bike to take out on great days with a fine weather report. It's a bike to take...

    Luckily, I only told one person at work what I paid for the bike. It's probably a good thing most people have no idea of price differences in bikes because a high level bike is a magnet for thieves....

    I'm 68 and have logged a lot of miles. Some of us in the club I used to ride and race for (1989-1996) tried the wax route and we had the buildup problems as well as the pain-in-the-neck chain removal...

    I saw a guy on one of those fat bikes the other day. He had a GoPro on his helmet presumably so he could sue whoever hit him if he lived. I bought a recumbent trainer with a seat that's more...

    I've said too much already. I'm smart enough not to leave my bike unattended outside but I worry about burglary. I'm not telling anyone from now on what I paid for any of my bikes. Luckily I don't...

    I like the concept for the improvement in motion on the front end. This type of pedal may benefit riders who have trouble with calf soreness and knee issues. I'm a little surprised that no testing...

    Sometimes you just have to go with what you've got. This might sound strange from someone who is shelling out a lot of money for a top-of-the-line bike but it makes sense to me. I can't stop the...

    I could've gotten it with my Super Six Hi-Mod but the shifting on it is a dream with the conventional set-up. My first question would be what happens when it gets wet or sticky with mud and road...

    I think we all agree that that is a good formula. My decision to go for it with this bike is more complex than many realize. When I was in the hospital waiting to see if my head injury was going to...

    I'm going with these pedals because they are a departure from what I've been using since 1986 which is Look. I may not like them so I'm not going for the top of the line model just yet. The color is...

    AF is still not well understood even by cardiologists. I can remember episodes of AF as far back as 1969 when I was 22 though I didn't know what it was at the time. Surprisingly vigorous exercise...

    Your point is well taken and we all wish we had done things differently. However, I cannot totally deliver perfect notes from the choir. I gave up the poison and went to the church of fitness many...

    When I was in the hospital I had consultations with several medical specialists from neurologists to orthopedists. Not one of them recommended or even suggested that I stop cycling. I can tell the...

    I'd be be retired if my wife was old enough to retire. Her employer dropped her health insurance so I put her on mine which is an excellent and generous plan. Three more years.

    The part about justifying it to myself is probably somewhat accurate but I made the mistake of telling a coworker what I paid and now it's out there for public consumption. I gave up alcohol twenty...
  23. My new $7,000 bike and the futility of justifying the price to the average person.

    The average cost of a pack Marlboro Reds in the US is $9.73. The average cost of a six pack of Bud in the US is $7.25. The average weed smoker in the US spends about $2500 in a year according to a...

    Greetings: I'll be 68 in March and still work 60 hours a week. I had a bad crash last summer breaking several bones and spent some time in the hospital getting lots of brain scans. I saw myself at a...

    I'm nearly 70 and have been cycling since 1983. I had the exact same problem you have when I first went to locking pedals. I went to look style pedals with a wide range setting and the problem...
