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.
