I had an old Ballistic X-Ocet mountain bike frame lying around that I used to ride when I was younger (a lot younger …back in about 1996). I decided to build it up with all old parts I could find or get cheap, even free with the the help of my brother who is in to mountain biking and donated some parts.
I’ve been out on it a few times along the handily placed new cycle track behind the house trying to get fitter but at the moment am still at the stage of feeling sick after about 30 minutes of riding.
When I was younger I used to be able to ride up and down mountains all day long. It’s going to take a while till I can do that again.
