Greetings from Lancashire, England!

Hi, I'm Jamie and I started cycling properly about 4/5 years ago. I suffered a major burn-out back in 2005 when I was riding a 150k endurance ride; it was the only time I'd experienced serious failure on a bike. As a result, I've been off the bike ever since, barring a short trip to Velodrome this summer.

Lately I've been thinking about making a comeback, and to mark it off, I'm going to buy an old vintage frame and build it up myself! So I hope to see you all around and share some stories with you all!

Cheers!

Hello Jamie, what part of Lancashire would that be, then?

You would not be a fellow Swintonian, would you ?

Oh, I saw the magic words 'vintage frame'! You must visit us here:
