    Ahoy there from Lake Erie.

    Hi,

    My name is Bill. I live in the small city of Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada about 1/2 hour from Niagara Falls. I moved here from Toronto about 3 years ago and decided to cycle for some exercise. I rushed out and bought a 21 speed bike with gadgets galore and even after replacing the seat with a large Raleigh one I still disliked the bike. Consequently I've ridden the "thing" maybe 6 times in 3 years. However I just bought an old 1 speed Firestone Pilot at a second hand store for $80.00 and love it. It needs a few adjustments but I'm sure I'll thoroughly enjoy it. I'll go on a different forum to try to find out some history etc. about the bike. This forum seems great and glad to be onboard.

    Regards, Bill.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Hello Bill, what year is your Pilot? The folks at the Classic & Vintage forum will enjoy seeing photos, and with luck, someone may be able to help you with some information.

    Welcome to BF!
