    Hello from Chicago Suburbs

    Hi all. I am from the Southwest Chicago suburbs. I am an Emergency Medicine Physician just getting back into the hobby after 20 years. used to Road Race "back in the day".



    My bikes as they stand now:



    1985 Specialized Allez SE (memories of American Flyers )

    2006 Giant Cypress DX (Wisconsin vacation bike)

    2008 Marin Mill Valley (Just ordered )



    I am just currently on the wind trainer watching the Spring come in. Also trying to match all my pedals a bit more (already posted about this, think I'm going with SPD A520, M324, A520 respectively: The Giant will be a gym shoe bike as well)



    Thanx for having me here

    Hi Xyphis, welcome back to riding! Have you had the Allez all these years? Get some photos of the Allez and come on over to the Classic & Vintage forum.

    With your profession, I would imagine that you will really enjoy your time spent cycling. Riding for many of us is an absolute necessity for dealing with the stresses of life.

    Welcome to BF!

    Actually, if it has downtube shifters, and it's made of steel, we'll honour it with 'vintage' designation .

    All it really means is that it's 'BB' (before brifters ).

    Welcome to the forums!

    Spring is indeed coming in. The upward spike in temps this week might be enough to take the snow and ice off the trails real soon.
