Old

I ride just about anything but Until now I ride a fatbike in the snow until I am healthy again.
I cycle-cross on occasion, was going to race again this year but to to injures again that may be on hold for a very long time.
For the second year in a row I was the top age-grouper Duathlon points winner.
My road bike is my main summer and winter trainer, an older Argon Gallium, and for fun in the mud an old MTB.



Argon E112 fit for Duathlons

Just pulled a new 2015 KHS Team 29 FS out of the box this evening. Purchased from Random Bike Parts...they have a sweet deal with a 20% off coupon on the $2092 price. Updated with picture of assembled bike, ready to rock.

Old is a state of mind. 58 here, upgraded to a Cannondale Quick Carbon 1 January 2018, added the Cujo 2 in November. Before that I rode a Giant Sedona on and off for about 10 years. Decided last year to get serious again, had a couple of Cannondale CAAD 5s in the early 20000s

Another 8 inches a snow since I took this picture and no end in sight. I was just telling someone in Chicago what a mild winter we were having. Mid 90's Colnago I think.

Midway is online now

How do you define old people? 60, according to the banner headlines, is now the start of middle age, and 74 the start of old - and I kid you not: Old starts at 74 . That's the UK, though, the USA may well be different.

it's been said before: 60 may be the new 40 but 10:00 is the new midnight.

This old person rides fat in the snow

I mostly ride road/gravel bikes....when there isn't snow on the ground. So, for the past couple of months, I've been riding a Pugsley....definitely different, and really do love the change. Have since swapped out the Nates for 45NRTH Dillingers studded. 30 miles race in a couple weeks.

I agree, nice looking bike. BUT, what's up with the mismatch bottles? (hope you know I'm just giving you a hard time - don't look too close at my photos)

The clear bottle holds "The Juice."



The black is a Bianchi bottle in tribute to the world's most expensive Pista.

New addition to the fleet. Specialized Chisel Comp X1. My first foray into the world of 29'ers, single chainrings, tubeless tires. It's been 15 years since I ordered a mt. bike and having ridden a LOT this winter, felt the urge. I didn't need another full suspension, have a Stumpjumper 26" wheeled bike for that. I picked this up last Wednesday. It then snowed Thurs AM, Friday AM and Sat. AM. I attempted a ride on Sunday and encountered slush and muck. I take it off the rack in my basement and sit on it.

At only 67 I don’t necessarily consider myself “old,” but here’s my road bike. My Roubaix is shear joy to ride.
