Hello From West. Mass

I may be new to this forum, but not bikes. Been riding 50+ years. Touring, club racing (while stationed in Germany) and now sport riding with local club. Legs are getting old, so this winter, doing major upgrade on 2 of my bikes. Removing old UG hub and cassettes , installing HG system. Going from a 26T to 28T and 30T.

Welcome aboard KC, seems you are well acquainted with bicycling, pick a forum or three and make yourself at home.

Welcome to Bike Forums from an almost 72 y/o roadie. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello.
