    Hello, from Western New York

    I've ridden bikes all my life, but I've just recently gotten more "into it". I have a Takara Prestige (old 27" ten speed) and a Columbia Formula 10 (26" 10 speed) that I rescued from a trash heap, a partially dismantled Nishiki Century (27" 12 speed, large frame) that I picked up recently, and a Huffy Ironman that I use for getting around at college. I enjoy doing my own repairs and saving bikes from the junk pile.

    Sounds like you have good credentials to come over to the Classic & Vintage section. I'd love to get my hands on an old Nishiki big frame; I crashed my big frame Olympic 12 in February of this year. By the way, where in WNY are you? I grew up in Cheektowaga, right next to Buffalo.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
