I ride my bicycle to work each day
It's not so far
It's better for me than my car.
I wear a helmet that is made of ...
Eat more, stay hydrated, have a great ride.
Perhaps the bike was labeled for Canadian sale. Does 15 speeds U.S. convert to 18 speeds using the Metric System?:D
Welcome, keep us posted on your adventures.
+1 on the train on the route advice. If you can do it, it will be a huge confidence booster.
It worked wonders for me both times I trained for successful completions of The Devil Mountain Double.
Thank you for your service to our country. Welcome to BikeForums. Spin easy gears on those hills for those knees. I am a runner turned cyclist from bad knees too. I hope you blossom as a cyclist and...
digitalbroccoli, you sound like a twin brother from another mother.
I am an ex runner whose ravaged left knee finally said no mas to running.

^^ +1 I totally agree. The front suspension will slow you down and tire you on pavement.
Welcome to Bike Forums. I know a rider named Butler. He is a heck of a guy and If you are anything like him, I like you already.
I would bet yes. I have a 50/34 compact and a Shimano XTR 11-34 cassette.

My 3 lowest gear sets are 34/27, 34/30 and 34/34.
Spinning with 3 variations is my game.
Centered on the saddle for a nice floating circular stroke.
Moving Forward a scoot to be "on the rivet"
Moving Back a bit to best employ Proper Ankling

Pleasanton is an awesome place to ride. You are surrounded by some fabulous routes. Enjoy.
I have a bad knee too. Cycling is the sport for the knee challenged. I...
That video is excellent. 50 miles into the ride and Up Up UP you go. I love the overlays.

Thanks for the nice pictures Phoebe. Or should I call you Freight Train? Like I did that whole day until I memorized your name.
I noticed a Ride Pic thread on the Singlespeed and Fixed Gear Forum.
I was impressed by our 2 fixie friends so much that I had to cross post some pics there, and subtly brag a little. :thumb:...
