My Old Peugeot Explorer Rides Again

I love this old Peugeot Explorer 050 bike. Made circa 1985 in France. Its frame is made from HLE Mangalloy. Small, thin tubes, light but made to last. 7 speed Shimano Acera X group set.

Took it out for a spin this morning tackling some hilly stretch and it was as dependable as usual; no fuss no complaint; just kept going slow and steady.

Old is gold. Like a pair of old jeans it feels good when you put it on. You developed an instant connection and understanding between your body and your bike. That’s a rare feeling.

Thank you old buddy…
