Hello from Minnesota

I am new to this forum. I just finished rebuilding/painting a 1991 Specialized Rockhopper. I had bought the bike new and rode it year round for the past 17 years.

I now am in the process of rebuilding a 1991 Specialized Sirrus Sport road bike.

I am an engineer by trade and really like to work on bikes.

Happy tinkering...

Gordy

Trek and Cheap Repair Stand

Here is a picture of my newest ride. I will be posting pictures of my rebuilt rides soon. I am also including the bike repair stand I made instead of watching football all day.

I had the wood and bought the U shaped supports for $2.50. It helps to have a post to attach things to. It may need a few fine tune adjustments but it looks like it will work just fine.
