Senior Clydesdale in Central Indiana

Hi all: Juan Carless here. 60 year-old male, 6'5", 270 lbs. Mostly I lurk in Clyde/Athena sub-forum. This year I finally got back into cycling after 12 year+ hiatus. Bought a new (last year's model, actually) KHS Flite747 and I'm loving it!

Hey Juan,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Post a pic of your bike sometime.

Can you guess What Road this sign is on?

Welcome to Bike Forums from a 70 year old in west central Florida. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers.

"Post a pic of your bike sometime."

Don't I have to have some minimum number of posts before I can post photos? 10 or 15? I read a lot, post very little. I did say I lurk in Clydesdale/Athena forum.

"Can you guess What Road this sign is on?"

Looks like the sun is over the photographer's left shoulder. If so, we are looking west (if a morning shot) from the Hancock/Marion county line, maybe one of the half-mile streets (16th St., 26th St. 36th... etc.). I wouldn't hazard a more specific guess than that.

This is my bike as delivered, in February. Since then I've swapped-out pedals (now running Shimano M-324) and saddle (Selle Royale touring model). Also, I have added an inexpensive set of lights (to be seen, rather than to see). I am considering changing the seatpost to a straight-type post as I have the Saddle all the way forward on the stocker. I know, the chain is on the small chainring in this photo, but my excuse is that at that time I had not yet ridden the bike except on the trainer in the bike shop while getting an preliminary fit. Yes, I know I really need to get properly fitted.
