    Age has slowed me down too. About 4 or 5 years ago, with about the same number of rides as this year, I was doing much better than I am now.

    Speaking of aging, another addition, especially...

    One additional caution on the frame. Unless you want to run very skinny tires, you may not want to buy something that says it is a race frame... they may not have the clearance for anything larger...

    Snug in this case doesn't mean impermeable to force... I am sure that My helmet would move a lot when muscled enough.

    I love the 2011 Trek 7.3 FX I bought used before this season. I put on 35 mm tires instead of the 32 mm it came with because I ride a lot of gravel. I weigh about 147 kg, so I would qualify as...

    That Kona looks like a nice bike. I have never owned one, but have heard good things about the Kona brand... I don't think the component differences are significant.

    Color is critical. :)

    Assuming you are going to ride the bikes for at least a few years, I wouldn't be concerned with resale value. After 3 or 4 years, either one will be worth almost the...

    I haven't researched the issue, but my brother did several years ago, and he found that for walking/running the number of calories were more impacted by distance than time.

    I don't know if thinner 27" rims are available, but I love the polished Sun CR-18s on my vintage bike, they fit with the overall look of a vintage bike.

    If you want narrower rims, you can consider...
