    Introduction

    thank you for the invite. Simply I am a 43 year old professional who still has not grown up! Every time I get on my bike I still feel like the 10 year old riding all over town with all the freedom of a simple life. I love that feeling.

    Hope I can be helpful in anyway

    Hello Old School Ride--exactly what kind of old school ride are we talking about here? Does it have lugs? Steel?

    Classic & Vintage is just a click away...

    Welcome to BF!

    The Bike is steel with Shimano's 105 all around, except for the wheels, I went modern there and got a set of AlexRims DA22s. The bike rides like a charm and the steel frame absorbs a lot of the road. The bike was manufactured in 1988 according to the seriel number. It needs some more fine tuning but I am very happy with it. I had a Cannondale Carbon Fibre but I could not handle the stiffness and the my back rebelled.

    Please stop by and bring pictures...we love photos in Classic & Vintage .

    I have a modern bike (Specialized Dolce Elite) that's aluminium with carbon forks, and I prefer to ride my old steel bikes too.
