Hello all,

45 y/o and new to the forum. I've been riding for 12 years or so and my latest bike is a Giant OCR C3.
My last ride was a carbon fiber Mongoose road bike and I also have a Gary Fisher mountain bike.

12 years and on again off again, a couple of months ago I decided I was getting too fat and dusted off the cob webs. One ride and my Mongoose had a frame issue. Anywho....... bought the new bike on May 14, at 215 lbs, fast forward to July 14 and I'm at 190 lbs. 1164 miles in the last 2 months and 25 lbs down and more serious about riding now than ever before.
