New member intro; been too long

As well as getting into cycling for the first time since I got out of college, in 1981, I also find out i qualify as a 'Clydesdale'; over 200 lbs! Now that's funny! True, but funny!

Several years ago my daughters got me a (I think) pretty good road bike, looks like a heavy duty frame, and now is the season to get back on it. Also have been working to fix up a daughter's bike for the wife to ride; chain was all rusted frozen from rust (grrrr) but a new one one, and everything else seems to work OK.

I'm gettin' excited about this; there have been a lot of changes in bikes since then. Was in one shop getting that chain & saw there are now hydraulic disk brakes WHOA!!!!!! COOLNESS!!!

Big thing now is some incipient tendonitis & ankle issues on the right side; a little arthritis in the ankle, and the subsequent funny walk leads to tendonitis on the outside of the leg. An ankle brace and antiimflammatories help, but what else can i do to get rid of it?

Welcome to Bike Forums. You also qualify for the 50+ forum (I'm guessing you're over 50) and the Southeast Regional subforum. We have several NC members in both forums. I'm in both forums, living in FL and being 69 y/o.

Now, where is the info about the bikes and the obligatory pictures of same?
