Hi from St. Louis / New Member

Although I am getting on in years, I still enjoy riding. I still ride my 87 Merckx which recently was cleaned up with a Joe Bell paint job. In 87-90's I lived in Boulder, so that is when I really got into biking. I saw a lot of 7-Eleven riders in town and saw a few Coors Classic races. I am in nostagia mode I guess, because I have collected several vintage 7-Eleven team bikes in the last year or two. Presently I have an 87 Huffy Serrota road bike, and an 87 Huffy TT bike, both ridden by Jens Veggerby in the 88 TDF. I just completed an 89 Merckx TT team bike. I don't have a real Merckx 89 team road bike yet, but I do ride a Merckx replica that I bought a couple of years ago. I look forward to talking to all of you.

Just teasing you! Take your time and look around, get comfortable.

But you will definitely have a lot of people taking a look when you get some photos up in C & V .
