I enjoy bicycling
I recently decided to keep an old Cannondale fitness bike - it shifts well, the brakes are fine, the frame, wheels, tires, and drivetrain are great - but - it was really not very comfortable. So, I ordered pedals, saddle, and grips and those changes have been VERY helpful - much more comfy.
I have a very nice road bike but this old clunker is great for short trips (20-30 miles) and I burn more calories - who cares if it takes me a little longer to complete the trip?
I created a PDF that reviews the upgrades but I don't know how to upload that.
Ride safe, ride often - stay hydrated! 🙂
Hi @Red_Sand - Welcome to the community!
With the project you just talked about, we think you'll fit right into the cycling crew here to discuss bikes, upgrades, rides, and more! Take a look around the cycling board and see if anything jumps out at you to add your stories or expertise on!
I love the thought on taking old clunkers out for shorter rides. Just last night I took my mountain bike on concrete after a ride in the woods to head through town to get dinner — the effort is so noticeable (and somehow entertaining?)!
It would be great to see your review of the upgrades. Since PDFs aren't a file type that can be uploaded as a photo here, could you take a screenshot of it and share that or open your PDF and export it as a JPG? Hopefully one of those works, as it would be great to see!
Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. We're excited you're here!
