hi. i'm new to the forum - just came upon it while searching for info on a bike i might purchase. i used to ride a lot - had a ciocc back in the 80s. did quite a bit of touring too - did seattle to SF and some in mexico. retiring this summer and plan to get back to it in earnest. have not had a chance to really dig into all the topics and posts here but the info looks awesome. all the best to everyone.
