I've been trying to get back into shape after almost a year layoff due to a medical reason. The weather is not cooperating very well yet. I did get out for a 20 mile ride today and my legs feel like rubber.

I'm probably not that far from you and have the same issue. Plus, I got called back to work.

Probably one of the best bikes to ease back into riding.

Same here. Just got back into riding and it's been raining and windy pretty much non-stop the past month I've been working from home.

I think you're right. I just finished cleaning putting new grease and bearings in the headset, bottom bracket and wheel hubs and it rides great

Same here, 97 today, 93 yesterday. Last week it was near perfect 65. We had an amost month of steady rain last month. Made lockdown bearable (almost). Be careful, what you wish for, though.
