Greetings from gloucester, ma

Aging, overweight father of three teenagers cycling local country roads with the kids for health & family time. Not a bike mechanic, but mechanically inclined. I prefer to perform the maintenance and use the bicycles as an opportunity to pass on mechanical skills. Hoping to learn from other members.

Welcome to Bike Forums from a 70 y/o. If your "aging" has you in the over 50 category, then stop by the 50+ forum and say hello.

Howdy and welcome to the forums, Seaox (interesting mental image that name conjures). There are some very savvy mechanics and restorers around here so I don't think you'll be disappointed. Very cool that you are going to pass on some skills to your children.

welcome to the forums... aging and overweight...you will fit in nicely here... lots of us that are or were "heavy" and aging is preferable to the alternative.
