Congrats on the new bike.. Spring will soon be here, and we will all have to get together for a ride...
Nice to see some snow melting yesterday. Definitely looking forward to getting together for a ride. I signed up for a race at durham forest (Uxbridge Icebreaker) this April through www.bikenxs.com so looking forward to getting alot of bike time in.
Hi,I just joined this thread today and just wanted to say a few things about me. I have always enjoyed "biking",but never wanted to spend great amounts of money on my ride. I enjoy trail riding on my "cheap" SportTek HS6000 MTB and have really good luck with it! It cost under $200. My riding buddy(who also owns an HS6000) and I like to explore the many abandoned railway lines in the area as well as a quick tour through the trails in Collins Bay. We live in Amherstview, by the way, and there are plenty of trails near us.
As far as road bikes are concerned,I recently restored an old CCM Corsa 10-speed that now looks good and works beutiful! I'm not out to compete in the "Tour du France" but to go out and have a fun ride on a half decent bike. I love this bike partly because of it's age(not sure when it was produced yet) and that it takes me back to when I was a kid and 10-speeds were all the rage. I'm looking forward to taking a few hikes downtown and mabe for dinner some nice sumer evening.
Restoring old bikes can be fun. I just wish I could find more info on them.
I go to school in boston, but it looks like I'll be spending my summer up in Kingston this year. How is the fixed gear following up there? I only ride fixed and I am looking for people who are interested in group rides and such.
