Finally! The hip is feeling good and strong to move up to a bigger ring.
Switched out my 32 to 46.
Heck ya! Back on the commuter bike start this morning. Ill just be riding just 3 days a week, keep it slow, and mellow to work and back. But its better than not riding at all!
Here is my new Commuter bike.
Gears, no gears, gears, no gears, gears, no gears, gears, no gears, gears, no gears, gears, no gears .. Are you getting the idea?

After a few years off .. I am not to happy giving up my bike lifestyle. Weight gain and just the idea I haven’t had the motivation has really gotten me to the point I need to get back on the bike. So I am planning a change for the good and hope this will get me back to the way I was 3 years ago.
Commute to Work
Ride a Century
Live the bike lifestyle
Moving to a new area .. you definitely have to scout out your commuter routes. So that’s what I did today. Couple of nice climbs, but overall .. this will be a good route to take. Hope to shave off at least 10 minutes as I get back in better shape. Allot of stop signs and heavy traffic crossing also.
