    Hello from RVA

    Hi all,

    I've been enjoying this site since before I purchased my first road bike. I appreciate the knowledge that is shared here so much. It is an invaluable tool.
    I am still in the midst of the learning process but hope to be able to offer any insight I may have.
    Currently I am working on my first bike build. A Vitus with Mavic and Campy components.
    You can check it out if you want at http://www.offcenterdesign.org/mode/?page_id=9 .

    Being an a (mostly) un-abashed noob I can freely admit that the bike count is not impressive in either quantity quality. Here it is.

    1990 Vitus 979


    1983 Trek 500


    ??? ??? (anybody have a clue?)



    I feel fairly introduced now.

    Hello Rob,

    Consider yourself fairly welcomed, too.

    Welcome to BF!

    By the way, I can't see the photos...

    Thank you personally,

    I checked the source code for the page and all the img links are correct and they are definately uploaded on to my server. I don't know. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Welcome here.

    I find the bike count interesting, especially for someone who proclaims to be a newbie. The important part is to have one bike and to ride it.

    P.S. I see the photos.

    You are correct. I have one bike that I ride. One bike that I lock up overnight. One that I am building.
    I like bikes as well as enjoying the ride.
