I've been having a awesome time riding my new Catrike Expedition up and down the coast. I've been using a Schwalbe Marathon Supreme 42/559 on the rear and Kojak 35/406s on the front. All inflated to the minimum psi rating. This thing rides fast and comfortable. Who needs suspension on paved roads. I tried suspension and it wasn't worth it. More about that here.
I'll have more thoughts about the Catrike Expedition in later posts. For now suffice to say I think the Expedition is one of the best (maybe the best) trike on the market. Versatility, comfort, speed, weight and price.
If an old falling apart guy like me can stay fit and enjoy life then just about anyone can do it. I'm 64 and I have no plans to watch life from the sideline. I'm not one of those fortunate few who has been genetically engineered by nature to stay fit without trying. I have to work hard at it. I've worked out in enough rusty old gyms to know you don't need fancy equipment and name brand sweats. Now I spend my workout days in my garage which passes for a gym and it's all I need along with a little classical rock. Working out and cycling not only makes me feel alive it also helps tremendously with the muscle pain in my hip area and a atrophied right medial gastrocnemius calf muscle (that's a mouthful to say) all thanks to my hip replacements.
I don't mind growing old. I've got a beautiful wife (who I met in a gym), five kids and nine grandkids that make me feel young.
