    My new exercise machine. Fat bike!

    ... but I cheat. <G>

    It's an eBike, so I can either peddle along OR get several levels of power assist with a click of a button. I went almost 20 miles the other day, peddling in the flats and using the assist up hills where my knees would start to bark. Kept peddling, but clicked in enough assist to maintain the same effort level I put in on the flats. Still ended up getting more exercise than I'd get on the standard mountain bike because I didn't wimp out as fast.

    That's an awesome machine. What brand/ model did you get and why. I am riding a bit myself but wife could probably use the assist. I sure I will need assist soon enough as well.

    I finally had to give up running and treadmill as it was taking a toll on joints. I do 30 mins on elliptical and mix in "stair stepper" 2-4 times a week. However, I continue my 4 days a week gym workout of 1-1 1/2 hours. I mix free weights, resistance machines, and body resistance. Cardio and weight training are both important to me. I admit cardio gets harder as I age. My height shrunk over an inch too :rolleyes:

    Currently I'm 5ft 9.5in and a little heavy at 170lbs. But I can do 10-12 pull-ups and bench press 185-95lbs at age 71.

    It's a RadRover. I like the fat bikes, and that's pretty much all you see on the trails this time of year as they're happy in the snow. Had a whole thread going about it (and other eBikes) recently if ya wanna take a peek.

    Currently working on "accessorizing". Bags, lights, glitter and handlebar streamers ... you know, the usual!
