Sheesh - I'd be still in diapers if I rode the same bike that was my age


Welcome sir! And love the sound of someone employing that two wheeled wonder as transportation! You'll have to check out the 50+ forum (guess I'll have to start posting there after July) as well as the commuting and Living Car Free Forum. Personally I stay mainly in Foo (goofy bicycle people who still post some bicycle kinda stuff - sometimes or just AIR) - and I go to commuting ---- and because I'm a true/blue bicycle advocate - I hit that forum as well. Lots to offer here! As well as an amazing amount of people from all around the world to talk to about bicycling (and other things).

First, we have to correct your mistaken idea that you are old. Nope, you aren't.

Second, kudos to you for your choice of commute vehicle, and please bring photos of it to the Classic & Vintage forum .

Welcome to BF!

You're just a kid. I'm 63.
There are several others here older than me.

BTW: Stay away from the 50+ forum. Lots of old people there.
