I like a few other syd-cycs will be building up a bike.
I have bought the frame and thinking it should be a nice fun bike, and somewhat "cooler" than what I would normally ride.
BUT on the morning ride to work, I had a cold sweat moment...
Should a man my age be seen riding such a cool bike?
Can you have a mid life crisis which has nothing to do with sports cars but all about bicycles?
Will my just turned 13 daughter think her dad is a dag riding a bike which any 20 year old would love to ride and will this cool bike be an issue to any boy friends over the next few years (Rule One son, "You MUST ride a bike"?)
Worst still, will I have to lend my bike to any of her future bfs?
Sorry for the warble but my question to the oracle is:
Are bikes age specific and should I have a rethink on my possible build... (I’m Gen X; it’s a 29er with a snazzy paint job; thinking single speed, thinking nice wheels, thinking mock baa end shifters, thinking too much...)
