Checking in from Soutghern Indiana

Well, here I go again after maybe 15 years off the bikes. We're moving the office out of the house and I think I can justify riding to work, so cool. Back in the day I raced a very little (citizens, maybe Cat4. It's been awhile). Lifestyle changes got me away from the bikes, and I got a motorcycle (not without it's charms), but I've been walking and doing the stationary bike and remember how freaking great it felt to ride.
So, as the winter ends I'll be lubing and putting new rubber on, for starters: a Mountain Goat Whiskey Town Lite (1991ish?), a Fisher Mt. Tam (Hmmm1998 or so?) and a Mongoose Redondo (4 speed internal gear hub).

Tom (46 and a clydsdale. Coolest bike I can imagine: 1976 Team Raleigh)

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I'm guessing it's my sort of place.

Check out Classic & Vintage, too. A lot of people share your admiration for those older Raleighs .

Welcome to BF!
