I’m 52 and I was just diagnosed as prediabetic. I was already in the process of losing weight and changing my diet when I got the diagnosis. When i got my new bike, I was 232 pounds. That was nearly 4 months ago. Now I am at 195 and need to drop maybe 10-15 more. One of the things I love doing is removing air from the Rockshox fork as I drop weight. Every week or so, I drop a few pounds and now I have also gotten to a different rebound setting. It’s the little things sometimes that keep you motivated. Oh and I am LOVING the new bike! 500 miles on it and counting!
