I'm an older guy who decided to take my 1991 Diamondback Apex down off the hooks and start riding again. Found out that I can't ride it anymore, hard to get on and off, the riding position doesn't work for me either. No more single tracks and climbing. Wife and I just want to ride around the neighborhood and use the nearby park paths. I researched and went around to bike stores, decided that a "comfort bike " is the answer. Bought a new Trek Navigator 2.0. So far, I like the bike. smooth ride, comfy seat. upright riding position, very sturdy build, great looking. I like the twist shifters ( I know that the purists may scoff, but for me it is easier to keep track of where i am at with the gears ) I think we are going to enjoy biking again like we did in our younger days.

Enjoying the ride, isn't that what it's all about? If you were miserable and uncomfortable you would likely not get out and exercise and enjoy at all, have fun and enjoy!

Body & gear changes as decades pass. I'm 66 riding a comfort hybrid which is much better for me than my old road bike of 25 years ago.
Riding is fun again.
