I've been a lurking member for some time now but always seemed too busy to stop and visit. You can call me Richard or richied. I'm from Lincoln, NE, work as a security admin in support of local justice and law enforcement, have three grown children, a wife and according to her, way too many bikes. I'm 63 years young and just started riding again after a 20-year hiatus when I dug my 73 Viscount Death Fork out of the garage and put her and me back on the road. I commute to work as often as possible and only stop when the ice and snow force me into the basement and onto a trainer.
I guess you could call me Old Skool cause if it's Made in China, is made of carbon or aluminum and features anything but friction shifting I'm not interested. Steel road bikes, particularly Treks prior to '87 are my particular interest. Happy to meet you all. I've discovered that people who love and ride bikes are the greatest and I look forward to sharing common interests in the future.
