Rode mountain bikes for 16 years but 7 years ago changed over to road. Had a few scares around 2000 and I decided that IF I had a re-occurrence of the problem- alone off road was not the place to have it. At least on the road if anything happened there would be a car along eventually.

Haven't had any more problems but I only ride offroad when out with others. Mind you- the roads I ride on - and I have more chance of finding a ditch than a car so the same problem could exist.

If coming back after a long layoff-be prepared for some pain. That bike won't go up hills like it used to-Won't have low enough gears- Won't coast as it used to and the saddle is going to hurt.

Welcome back.
