New to Biking for like the 3rd or 4th time

Used to be TrekJapn when I lived in the Land of the Rising Sun but moved back to the US about 6 years ago. Went on one ride and got a bottle thrown at me after years of glorious courtesy in Japan. Stopped riding. I'm 57 and the last hurricane and the COVID have conspired to keep the pools closed on the Base I work at in North Carolina.

I jog but I just cannot jog exclusively and the pool isn't opening this summer so back on the bike.

Picked up a Trek FX2 a week or so ago. Been on a few hour long rides and it's just a beautiful thing to be on the rural roads in Eastern NC. I should have never given it up.

Got rid of the Bontrager tires and put some Schwalbe Little Big Bens on it and I'm a happy lad. Rolls like a greased bearing downhill.

Also just bought a Surly Ogre but it's on backorder for a month or two. I'll wait. The Ogre seems perfect for me and can't wait to slap some Big Apples on it. My favorite bike ever was a 2007 Trek Soho with Big Apples on it.
