I checked out the 50+ and that forum wasn't very interesting. I found a lot some of the posts were more concerned with comfort and just getting excercise because of docs orders that I would ask questions elsewhere. I am older (won't use that term you mentioned) but keep up with guys half my age (not necessarily competitive athletes) and like to push myself a bit as I have always done in the past. Flew jets off carriers in my first career and haven't lost the drive that kept me going in that life. I was more of a motorcycle and MTB rider than a road rider so this is a new direction for me and I find that I really enjoy it. On the shop it may be a toss-up on the fit but I agree that that is an important point. Before I plunk the $$ down, I will be revisiting both shops. Both have offered to set up any bike to my fit to allow for test rides which I will do. Thanks for the reply as well.
