New in here

Been a lurker for some time and I finally joined today.

I started racing as a junior and did it for 10 years - up to Cat 2. Then I burnt out and stopped racing for the next 10. Now I'm back at it - as a Cat 4 - and I'm having a blast. Bike racing/riding is fun again - like it is supposed to be!!

I have a Litespeed, a Specialized Transition, a Tommasini (fixed gear) and an old Bridgestone MB-1.

Right now we live in NY, but we are seriously considering a move to NC - I have a very interesting job opportunity there.

All very nice!

Uh, how old is the Bridgestone? Vintage? Photos?

Apparently you needed a break ............ of about a decade. It's great that you have the fever again! When you get the opportunity, please post a pic or 2 of you steeds.

BTW, welcome to BikeForums!
