reasons for not riding as much as in the past??? My last blood test sh owed a B12 deficiency. The nursesaid something like the numbers should be b etween 2.1 and 9 and mine was 2.4. She told me to buy over the counter B12 vitamins, 1000mcg and takedaily for six months until my next blood test. I was a victim of West Nile Virus in 2003, which caused encepalopathy. Aft er hospitalization and since then, have not really been myself and then h ad an appendectomy last April at age 52. slow recovery. So I am hoping th at getting myself back in line with the B12 vitamins gets me back to bette r health so that I feel like riding again. I am feeling good right now a nd am building some new (to me) campy nuovo record small flange hub wheel set to put on my Sarroni with nr components. and even going to ready my 74 Schwinn paramount. Hoping to ride for many more years. and am inspired by the list members posting about riding and their ages, etc. Robb Rasm ussen Brookings, SD 57006
