Hi Forum

After childhood I picked up biking again ten years ago and peaked commuting 150-200 miles per week. I survived one hit and run with a van and am now riding much more normal local routes. I still have my Trek Pilot 1.2 62cm which I got as I started commuting. It fits great and I've maintained it over the years including one cassette rebuild after I found out that one can actually bend those things going up hills revealed after putting on a new chain.

Right now I am looking at doing more restoration of cool looking older bikes as a Winter hobby, so about six months of the year up here

Welcome to Bike Forums. A 62cm frame? You must be tall.

Yes indeed 6'5", 240lbs. Another reason I've stuck with that Pilot, it hasn't broken under the strain.
