Hello all! I'm a teacher in Chicago. I haven't been enthusiastic about bicycles for long, though I've been getting more and more involved in the mechanical side of things over the past year or so. I ride a '74 Raleigh Sports that I reconditioned myself, and right now in my sunroom is a '70 Schwinn Breeze basically completely disassembled. I rebuilt the old 3-speed hub and then built a new high-quality wheelset around it. Once the frame is cleaned up and touched up, it's going back together hopefully in better than new condition.
While fixing up classic bikes is what got me started in this world, some longer rides along the shore of Lake Michigan have gotten me interested in something newer and sportier...so perhaps this summer I'll build up a new ride to complement the old.
Thanks for reading...I look forward to seeing many of you around here!
