    Newb from Springfield, MO.

    Hey there. I was referred to this site by a bike nut friend of mine after talking to him about how I had just started riding. I got started because I have a short commute that felt silly to drive and now I find myself looking for excuses to ride my bike. I'm looking forward to learning more about cycling and this place seems like a vast resource for that.

    I have two bikes at the moment:

    A '92 Trek 750 that I've put fenders and a rack on for my commute. I also have an old Dawes Galaxy (serial number is 3469 -- does that mean it's a '69?) that I'm kicking around the idea of fixing up.

    I had the 750 "tuned" but the positions in which my shifters leave the derailleurs still cause them to be sort of "in between" where they need to be -- I'll be riding and when I really torque the crank the chain pops into another gear -- VERY annoying.

    Hi hoopy, let's see some photos of the Dawes in the Classic & Vintage forum--quite a few people have a Dawes, and the Galaxy in particular.

    Check in with the Bicycle Mechanics forum to see if anyone can assist you with your derailleur.


    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
