    Retrogrouches

    I have been unable to get on the Oldroads site for a few days now. Any of you guys know what might be up? I'd hate to see it go as the # of good sites is limitted. BTW this is definitely one of the good sites right here.

    Systems have been getting hit very hard by the nimda virus over the past few days. I suspect this may be the reason you are having trouble getting to the site. Give it a few days and it will probably be up again. In the meantime, check out www.sheldonbrown.com/harris for a retrogrouch fix.

    This should take you right to the Vintage Lightweight discussion area at OldRoads.com from there you can navigate to several other discussion boards about everything from mountain bikes to high wheelers. I don't work for them but it's a neat site esp. if you like older bikes.
