I'm so glad to find a forum to share bicycling experiences, thoughts, ideas, etc. with others! Like everyone else, I rode my bike to school and all over town when I was a kid in the Canal Zone (Panama Canal) and am now rediscovering the joys (anguish?) of riding as a means to staying healthy and enjoying the area I'm living in. As a middle aged and overweight guy who needs to learn to slow down and enjoy smelling the roses, I have found that bicycling helps me to do just that. I'm not likely to ever get involved in racing or any of that at my age, but I do enjoy the camaraderie of seeing other cyclists out on the roads too! My main interest is road biking, mostly with a Shimano equipped Litespeed Tuscany. My bike is a 1998 model and I too have found no source for replacement decals and Litespeed bar tape.
