Andrea with a Hello! from North Pgh Pa!

Hi, almost 60 and needing to upgrade my bike! Love to ride and need to do more to get in better physical condition!! I have been reading these forums and enjoy all the information I have received! Currently have a entry level Schwinn, looking for a easy riding, light hybrid. I have been shopping around and like the Kona, Cannondale, Novaro, and Jamis. Trying to get a good fit and combo of good rapid fire shifters and nice tires. I like the easy riding fit with the handle bars higher than the seat.

Lacumo meant the 50+ forum. I'll see you there. I'm 68.

This is the kind of unfortunate thing that can happen when a 67yo like me goes computer-active without putting the glasses on first. Now I'll have to see if "Mister Memory" can prevent me from repeating that mistake. I'd rather not guess which side of that question the smart money will be on...
