Introductions - hello from the niagara region
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Hello everyone, I figured I'd join this group so I could see all the pics and maybe ask some questions. I've always owned one bicycle at a time since about 1973 (12 years old). The first one was THE GREEN MONSTER, a bike too big for me that I painted green, changed the seat and handle bars ( man I hated those cottered cranks), single speed. The next was a brand new 10 speed medalist from canadian tire. After that was stolen I bought a new 12 speed excalibur from the same store and managed to keep it for over 10 years until I got the bug again and bought a hybrid (was getting tired of the skinny tires). Still have the hybrid, though the bug came back when my freind gave me his raleigh condor I was storing for him. Took me a long time to identify the bike online (the component group is the shimano golden arrow 1983) Since then I've bought 2 bikes from a newspaper ad,2 bikes from the police auction, and 2 bikes from garage sales. "It really is more fun, when you own more than one".

Welcome to BF Qurry.
You might need a larger garage if you keep going.
I'll try to get some pics posted soon. As for a bigger garage, I live in an apartment, but it has a big balcony where I enjoy the sunsets with my bikes over a cold one.

Just borrowed my nephew's camera and took some pics of one of the bikes I bought this summer.85896. It's a 1987 Bianchi Campione D'Italia. Got it at a garage sale for $30.
Let us see if I got this uploading thing right!http://s421.photobucket.com/albums/pp300/gurrygnu/?action=view¤t=100_4857.jpg
Now with a small description, It is a celeste green bianchi. I did not like the colour at first, but now I couldn't even think of changing it.http://i421.photobucket.com/albums/pp300/gurrygnu/100_4857.jpg?t=1226072637
This bike is a Raleigh big horn from 1991. I swapped out the bio-pace chainrings, handlebar, and wheels.http://s421.photobucket.com/albums/pp300/gurrygnu/?action=view¤t=100_4846.jpg
