Hi mtnbk3000- I ride paved and dirt. Been riding off and on for many years. My first big ride was about 150 miles (Ogden UT to Evanston WY)- about 1967. I thought that 'English' 10 speed was pretty cool at the time. Did a few biathalons over the years. I just had angioplasty and a stent installed about 4 weeks ago and am working into biking again. Walking 2-3 hours per day would drive anyone to bike!

Right now I'm keeping my heart rate at 70% or less, so it's difficult to go very far on the bike. I tried to get out of the subdivision yesterday, but HR passed that mark before I got to the top of the hill! But it will come.

My rides are a Trek 5200 (bought new in 1992), a Cannondale Delta (new in 93), an old Cannondale (new about 1987), and my trusty Nishiki (new in '83- use it as a stationary trainer).

My goals are to train for some TT's- hope to make the Huntsmans World Senior Games this fall (public notice- now I'm committed). So I'll be in the market for another bike soon.

Hello Dave--what kind of Nishiki have you got? I love Nishikis, I've got ummm, five. Or is it six? I've got quite a few, at any rate. Come visit us in the Classic & Vintage forum, too.

Welcome to BF!

Hi East Hill- I have the International model. It's still a great bike, and I never tire of the looks of the older bikes. I'll check out the Classic forum.

Oh, a man after my own tastes! I also have a Nishiki International . There's quite a story behind my acquisition of that particular bike--to be found in the C & V forum...

Photos?

Thanks Dave! Your International is older than mine (and larger as well ), but with (apparently) the same yellow bar tape!

If it rides as nicely as mine, it's a joy...

How old is your yours? I can't for the life of me recall when I bought mine- it could be as far back as 1980 or even older???
I was really attracted to any bike that had chrome on the fork or rear stays. That was 'must have' for me.
