Hello from Akron, Ohio...

Hello, my name is Jeff and I'm from northeast Ohio. I'm 40 years old and have been riding bikes a lot recently for various reasons. I bought my first real road bike second hand from a friend when I was 19 or 20. I still have this bike, it's a Raleigh, and I'm planning on re-doing it, and hope to draw from the knowledge of others on this sight for help with this project.

My daily driver is an old (mid to late 80's) Schwinn LeTour. It was given to me by the brother of a friend and he purchased it at an estate sale for five bucks. I've changed a few things around on this bike and added some components to make it commuter friendly.

I have an old Schwinn Spitfire, not sure what year and another Schwinn three speed from around the same vintage.
