I am a bike maniac from Richardson, TX (next to Dallas proper). I am interested in vintage bikes, bike mechanics (the mechanics of bikes, and the mechanics themselves as well I guess ), long distance touring and racing, and commuting.
I currently own 5 bikes:
1973 Raleigh Gran Sport - my daily commuter
1972 Raleigh Lady's Sport (in pieces - I want to learn more about restoration and fix it up)
2007 Schwinn LeTour (this was my first road bike, I might be selling it in a couple of months)
2006 Bianchi 9-2-8 L'Una - the only Ferrari I'll ever own
1968 Schwinn Collegiate - recently purchased at a garage sale - selling if anyone is interested.
So - I am sure I will be all over the forums with tons of questions - everything from taking apart a bottom bracket to training for a double century.
And by the way, if you go to Southern Methodist University, or know someone who does - contact me! I will be leading some beginner-intermediate rides on Sundays starting 3/30/08.
