    Hi from Belgium

    I'm Brecht, male and 29 years old. I'm living in West-Flanders in Belgium, Europe. Right now I'm riding a 12 year old Venturelli hybrid bike, I have an old Raleigh roadbike at the attic in need of some heavy cleaning and I'm longing to buy a Spezialised Sirrus / Trek FX / something similar.

    Hi!

    Very nice! I like the Arabesque components...are you going to tone down the bar tape?

    I'm actually considering converting the Raleigh into a fixie. Probably with a flat bar...

    And after wandering through these forums, it seems a lot of you are very keen on Belgium. Especially its beer, chocolates, French fries and waffles. But hey, that's pretty normal!

    Keep on biking! And don't drink & drive.

    Chocolate and beer is a winning combination, always!

    Brecht, what she's really saying is, "Don't make me ban you for not changing the tape!"

    Welcome to the Forums, I hope you enjoy them.
    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.

    That tape is butt ugly.

    Not changing the tape would not merit a ban.

    Not bringing me chocolate and beer when visiting from Belgium--that would warrant a ban .

    It took me a while to get a picture of the bike. I have been riding the bike for about 4 years now. Unfortunately I got hit by a car three weeks ago, hence the wicked wheel.

    Miche Pista Advanced cranks, Campy hubs, Weinmann brake, Mavic Open Pro rims, TTT handlebar, BBB headset.

    Will become a SS instead of a fixed. Have mounted Cane Creek brake levers with one Crosstop for the rear and Shimano Tiagra brakes. White Ind. eno freewheel and Lizard Skin bartape.
