LOL I think cycling after a squats day would be good, but not as a workout bike ride. The idea would be to spin nice and easy, and keep it short. If done right, it should aid in recovery.

Are we worried about sterotypes, there? I'm sure the suggestion was only tongue-in-cheek. Whatever you do, don't get rid of your racing bikes. You can still enjoy those even if you're not racing.

Not sure why you'd assume that since large-brand manufacturers rarely use the same rim across their line-ups. In fact, that rim doesn't look like it has a dedicated brake surface.

There's always a lowracer or trike if head trauma from a fall is an unacceptable possibility. The downside is, you'd be right at the dog's level.
