This is my first bike in over 20 years. Picked it up today and put 5 miles on it and loved every push of the pedal..
By 9 and 3 I'm referring to your pedals being at the 9'oclock and 3'oclock postions. I'm not sure why people have a thing about it, I was more making a joke.
The Rules, as shared by Rola, clearly state that 9 and 3 is NOT acceptable. See #26.very very nice bike. I'm sure someone is going to get on you about not having your pedals and 9 and 3... don't care personally. That is a very nice bike to upgrade to from not riding in over 20 years. I hope it lasts, and you get many miserable miles out of it.
