    I miss C&V...

    It's been a long time since I've been on here, much less posted.
    I've been lurking more and more again. But after having had to sell my bikes, and taking on a new job, and a whole mess of things, it's been difficult to come back. There was atleast 2 months when I didn't even come here (BikeForums.net in general)
    I feel so out of the loop. And even more out of place without a bike.
    I've been looking for one, but the pickings around here are slim lately, and money's had other places it's been needed.
    Ah well.
    I'm gonna try and come back here a lot more often now.
    I miss you guys.

    Hey Gene!

    We've missed you too. I still walk by that abandoned Twenty everyday and wish there were some way I could liberate it for you.

    I am sure I speak for everyone when I give a "+1" to that "welcome back, Gene. "

    A lot of folks have been/are going through some difficult times, we know. - But be assured, there is a light - and a grail bike or two at the end of your tunnel!

    I ride a 55-57cm "square" (top tube=seat tube).
    Uh. Fender eyelets? Rack mounts, maybe? Canti's would be nice. Lugs, obviously.
    Iuhno. I just want a bike. I've been seeing so many people riding lately. It makes my heart cry when I know I can't be out in it.
    BG: The job is awesome. Doesn't pay great, but I'm only at the bottom of the chain, and I definitely have the opportunity of moving up.

    A set of wheels is just sitting here, ready for you to ride. You know it fits.
    You know me, it's not a touring rig, more in line with the super 'sonic you built.
    PM me. JP asked about you at Louisburg; I said "who?"
    I kid, too. Everytime I rocket down Hwy 39, I wonder what Gene's up to....

    It's not like you don't have my phone number Robbie, or know where I live, lol.
    I think at this point 5-10 miles would kill me. I haven't been on a bike since November. Ugh...
    I mean. If you all pitched in. I would be forever indebted. But you all don't have to do that.
    The fact that it's even coming up proves to me that I still belong here.
    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the welcome back.

    I'll keep my eyes open for a frame and fork for you. I have been stumbling upon some neat stuff recently.
    Emails are quicker.... RobvanI-81@hotmail.com

    i have a schwinn somethingerother in around that size you could have. it aint pretty but its sound and would get you on the road. its a frame fork headset and i'll find a seat post bolt and bb and thrown them on on you want it. i can probably donate some other stuff too, like used but good tires/tubes, a brakeset...probably more if you need it.

    only thing is you'd have to pay shipping which probably wouldnt be too bad. if you dont want the frame i can still donate parts.

    Welcome back! I feel like Iíve been in a similar situation as yours. Last year I had to sell all my bikes. I felt naked. I keep telling myself that Iím done with C&V, then I lurk, then I feel like I have something to say (Which most of the times means I donít). But, I agree. Itís a small group with a similar interest. And, although Iím more of a hermit crab than a social butterfly, I still love working on bikes and Iíve learned so much from this forum.

    Itís too bad youíre on the other side of the country. I have 2 long term restoration project bikes that might fit you. One is a Cannondale, the other a Centurion Elite. They both would require Ďa lotí of work. But if youíre interested, Iíve recently heard that Amtrak is the way to go for shipping.
    Jeff
