    Hello from downtown L.A.

    I just bought a Univega Gran Turismo today. I don't know what year it is...
    I'm very excited to fix it up. I'm fairly new to cycling... sort of randomly had an urge to buy a bike like 2 years ago (after not having ridden since I was a kid and I'm 39 now). Anyway, I excitedly ran out and bought a used bike without doing any research and soon discovered that it was too big for me. But, I borrowed a friend's smaller bike, started training for ALC6, managed to complete 50 miles a day on the actual ride (on a loaner from Cannondale, which was awesome) and here I am now looking at my "new" used Univega that is actually the proper size frame for me. I love it already...
    Here is the actual bike as it was posted on craigslist earlier today before I adopted her

    You must hasten to the Classic & Vintage forum to show this off! We've got a Univega thread going right now, too .

    Oh yeah, check out the thriving SoCal regional forum and say hi to them as well. Always a lot going on over there.

    Welcome to BF!

    Don't forget photos for the C & V forum!
