Greetings

Hello, my name is criscoshoes.

This is my very first forum that I've ever subscribed to on the World Wide Web and I live in Seattle.

I recently returned to bicycling last year after a ten year hiatus -- it's nice to be back.

Currently, I'm riding a green 1970s Raleigh Competition with the five-three-one, chrome Nervex lugs, and Campagnolo NR derailleurs. My second bicycle is a red 1960s Raleigh Gran Sport, which I purchased recently to be made over to fixed. This bike has some problems, but should be a good project for me to work on.

Cheers and good riding to all of you.

Regards,

criscoshoes

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Welcome aboard!

Be sure to check out our Classic and Vintage forum! You'll find kindred souls that love old Raleighs, and other vintage steel!

Hello criscoshoes, what part of Seattle? Do you stick to mostly the paths, or do you venture out into traffic? At any rate, check out the regional forum for the Pacific Northwest, and say hello to us locals.

Welcome to BF!

Hey East Hill,

I live on Capitol Hill and ride the streets, mostly. My bicycle is my transportation for errands and whatnot; a few miles here, a few miles there.

Thanks for suggesting the regional forum!

Regards,

criscoshoes
