Hello from an old fart at Fremantle Western Australia

After 60 years of not riding bikes I decided to give it a go again.

In my lack of wisdom I purchased a mountain bike for the dual suspension, not realizing that it was really superfluous on the road, and I had no intention of going mountain biking. However, I am making the best of it and currently adding bits and pieces to the bike, as well as upgrading or changing some of the components.

I am a retired engineer from the oil and gas industry, aged 76, and have always been into cars and motorbikes, to which I have now added bicycles. Also love most things to do with the arts, and classical and jazz music.

Welcome to Bike Forums from a 70 year old in west central Florida. When you're visiting the 50+ forum, post something in the 65-85+ thread.
