Congrats, thinktubes. What maintenance/replaced parts got the Schwinn through 3,000 miles last year?

Thanks!

New tires early in the season, new chain around the mid-point. Had a bottle cage break in November. Also changed from 48T to 50T and trued the wheels.

Due for an overhaul this winter. Coming up on 10K since I built it up in late 2017. Just got 5Ē of snow, so riding is on hold for a while.

I need to to make a more serious commitment to do more riding in 2022, I have been stuck around 4K for the past 5 years.

Congrats to all who got out on the bike(s) regularly, maintaining their physical and mental health!

I had a good year, putting 8882 miles on my modest collection of bikes. That's a good year for me, and it included many rides with friends. One noteworthy aspect to this year is that I was able to do a bit of regional traveling and get out on roads I don't see much. A favorite area is St. Louis, about 3 hours south of me. There is a good bike trail running along the Mississippi and Illinois rivers that offer scenic views.....



Steve in Peoria, hoping for more opportunities to see new roads in 2022!

Congrats indeed! I just read an article touting what we already know, but going beyond with new studies showing that, even if one isnít losing weight (as some desire), they get the same health benefits - reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, lowered cholesterol, longer life, etc., etc., etc. In fact, it just seams downright dangerous not to ride a bike! (It didnít say anything about n+1Ö)

Regardless of goals, may the new year bring you many happy miles!

Same goal as last year, well probably the last 4 year, is 4500 miles. Once retirement comes in 2 or 3 years I hope to up it significantly.

It looks like I am already behind my previous years.

I'm shooting for 500/month so 6K for the year again. I'm already falling behind, but hopefully I can catch up
