    Retro Bike Thread

    Hi Joe,

    There seems to be alot of chat about old bikes, both road and MTB, and I was wondering if it was worthwhile having a sub forum for Retro Bikes.

    What do you and anyone else for that matter think?

    Cheers mate

    I would love it, may also get some of the
    Classic Rendezvous listers here too (Richard Sachs,
    Brian Baylis, Sheldon Brown to name a few).
    I'm also posting this to push it back to the top.

    Sounds good to me, just we just call the forum "Retro Bikes"? If somebody comes up with the name, and a short description of the forum, i'll create it.

    theres a lot of us ride older bikes as they are more afford able but we like to keep them in top condition so a retro/classic bike thread would be a great idea, collective knowledge, a great tool.
    :D
    dont worry be happy ????

    Hi Joe,

    'retro' means backward. Many cyclists, including me, consider that an insult. Classic/Vintage would be a better title.

    my old bike is an "Avanti"( Sprint) .I believe avanti means to go forward so my retro Avanti Sprint bike is a backward ,forward running bike !!
