new member, returning to biking
Hi this is Dave, signed up today, used to train and race a little in late 80's with a white Cannondale.
A car accident put a damper on training hours. I did join IHVPA and got motivated to build a recumbent tricycle after seeing a show about British HPV'ers.
However a few years a go, a friend moved back in town and started motivating me to cycle more and after suffering on my GT RTS -3 I went into a shop to talk upgrade and fell in love with a Bianchi San Jose single speed...one of the most comfortable bikes I have ever ridden.
More riding led to me to buy a Soma Double Cross frame and outfitting with a bunch of vintage parts and most of my original Shimano 600 group off my 1986 Zunow. A Japanese made frame bought in Japan...now in the attic. Polished and cleaned parts work great.
Currently working on a new tadpole tricycle FWD recumbent with myself doing all the machining.
Love vintage Campy, hate carbon fiber and all the funky new frames.
