    I did get the ok from my doctor before I began and he fully endorsed it as long as I took it
    easy. I've been riding the flat trails in the park and have gone from being able to ride less
    than a mile t...

    Yeah, I'd forgotten my inhaler. That certainly didn't help matters. I am on medication for it
    and it's usually well under control. I'd never done any serious inclines before though. I do
    believe I'll ...

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only "old" person out there giving this a try. I've tried to get
    hubby out there with me. He has a bike, but he has his own projects going on right now. My
    youngest son rid...

    Thanks, I'll have to save Sheldon Brown's site. Very interesting. From what I'm reading, the 60
    it's at now would be good for riding on the gravel, but when I go back to the road, I should
    put at leas...

    Put a piece of paper over the SN and rub it with a pencil. You might get a readable
    impression.Yeah, that was the first thing I tried. It's really filled in pretty good with
    paint. I'm going to try th...

    Go get some silly putty, playdough, or something similar. When I am working on my car and I
    cant tell what kind of bolt something is, this is what I do. I usually even get the
    manufacturer's imprint w...
