Hello from League City Texas

First let me say, that you have a wonderful forum here !
My name is Ken, and I've been looking into getting a couple of folding bikes for use around our RV travels. I found this site researching Downtube Bikes.
I grew up amongst the international oil industry ,so you could say I have cycled in most of the countries of the world.
My wife and I love cycling but our present space requirements will only allow a couple of folding bikes. After reading a few dozen post, it seems that the Downtube will be a good choice for us.

Hi Ken! Have you got any photos from your travels? We'd love to see them if you've got them .

Check out the regional forums for the Texas forum--there's lot of Texans here. And, don't be shy about posting, that's what makes BikeForums so great .

Welcome to BF!

I'm Rob, old runner moving into cross-training, had friends w/bikes back in the 80's, so all I remember is their bikes. Picked up a couple of old Centurions and am having fun making them better, and riding, of course. Learned a lot about them from this Forum, and people tolerate my ignorance of bikes and most else.

My goal is to amass a collection of Ironman bikes, restore or upgrade them, and ride them against "kids," who think steel is a verb. I've got one about done and midway into another, looking squarely at a third. With gas and a teenager, I'm hoping to set an example of how we can RIDE to the store, post office, gym, etc.
