What's new

The state of my Pinarello Dogma for the last 5 years


Jul 7, 2007
I've gotten older and rather lazy cycling for the last 5 years. A scooter has seen my weekend commutes more frequently. My beer belly has grown too with age even though i don't drink beer. "Mottainai" has been bugging me all these years so I will resurrect my dogma and do light casual cycling with regular clothes on this week. My cycling trouser and shirt don't fit me anymore.

I've gotten older ... for the last 5 years.
Funny how that happens to everyone.

Gambare! It's lovely just to cruise. Watch out for phone zombies though...

I’d say give your bike some TLC. Preferably do it yourself if you can. Check everything, starting from chain to BB to brakes to cables. If you can’t, ask a shop to do all or parts of it for you. You should also check your helmet and consider ordering a new one. The foamed plastic gets brittle with age and can crack.

The start riding. Oh and don’t get discouraged if your fitness is in the crapper, it’ll come back with time.
