    Hi, I am new to this forum whch I found while trying to learn about a bike. I recently decided to get back into bicycling. I bought an older racing bike which I am trying to learn about, I have pictures if there is a way to post them. I would also like to learn about different places to ride in west central Fl.
    Thanks, Tony

    Welcome, Tony. See here for how to post a picture. We love 'em around here.

    Hi, I have tryed to upload pictures but thery are too big. I opened a photobucket acct. and uploaded them there. http://s205.photobucket.com/albums/bb311/aschryer/. I just got this bike to get back int o riding. It is in the shop getting new tubulars and a thorough lube and cleaning as it appeared to be in storage for a very long time. I am very interested in any thing I can learn about this bike- age, origin etc.

    Trying to get started here

    I don't do forums so this is all new to me. I sent a reply to someone before and it shows up on a thread.
    I was explaining that the 100 K limit on photos was making it impossible to post photos.
    Anyway I sent a link to a Photobucket page I set up with some good pics of my Coppi bike it shows up on the thread but I have no indication anyone has seen the Pics. Here is the link

    Tell me if you can see them and what you think

    Old bike- new to me

    I just got this bike, then 2 weeks in a bike shop. It seems like it's going to be fun.
    I have about 10 pics so far and I'm anxious to learn about it.
