get your full-face helmet. i ate shit hard a couple months back and my head was fine after impacting asphalt.
i sold all my 80s road bikes recently cause i cant do the aero position anymore. One buyer had to redo the joints(lugs?) on the bottom bracket cause they were starting to give. any bike can fall apart or break.
I've got a steel frame E-bike for commuting to work...though im 100% WFH again starting Monday. i spent alotta time researching E-Bikes to balance features and paper-faces. would buy again. the Ebike is faster than driving a car to work.
i have a trek 820 with fancy dutch road tires for when i don't want all the weight of the e-bike. i did a time-trial hill climb on this one, its my solid rider for going anywhere.
i also have a 80s looking Peugeot mountain bike with fancy dutch tires. this was my Fair Weather commuter before the E-Bike. it needs work, the paint looks terrible, its a beater.
Recently had surgery, i'll be back in the saddle this spring. (edited)
