    Hi, from Charlotte, N. Carolina, USA

    Hi to all, from Charlotte, NC.

    I've been a visitor on this site for a couple of weeks...Great Forum! I was an avid rider for many years...then stopped riding for a decade or so...and now I've just started riding again. I'm currently riding a road bike (Ross Centaur, pink & white, beautiful...but not my color choice). I'm keeping my eyes open for my 'next road bike' and I've been perusing the wealth of info here on BF. I also sometimes ride my old hybrid/mtn.bike (80's Lotus, heavy & built like a tank...must be made out of concrete). Since I've just started riding again, I'm not really that comfortable with fast bikes (or slow ones either)...that's why I like the 'clunkers' and that's why my User Name is 'Clunker.' Best Wishes to all.

    Ron

    Welcome Ron.
    Now you need to show some pics of your bikes.
    All bikes are good. Enjoy what you have.

    Hi Ron, welcome to the forums. Clunkers are a lot of fun, cheap, and can be made reliable. I've got a few myself and they are great for learning to fix, rebuild, restore, ride.

    Thanks 10 Wheels & gurry. I will try to post pics soon, but I'm not sure if it is proper to do it on this thread. I also just got a couple of 'project bikes' at a yard sale (I 'got weak')...a Panasonic Team (1985?) in Fair Cond. & a Miyata 914 (1989-early 90's) in GC to VGC.
    I really do like the older bikes, as I think they have a 'classic look,' and my preferred riding speed is currently a VERY leisurely pace. If I had a modern bike, then I would 'get weak' and be tempted to 'push the envelope' (not yet, maybe later). I promise to post pics soon. Before I post the pics, perhaps I should read the 'stickies' & forum guidelines again to find out the proper forum/thread to post the pics. Thanks again. Best Wishes.

    Ron

    thanks donlode, I would love to visit Australia someday...it is one of this world's great treasures. Best Wishes.

    flyingscotsman,
    I currently live in North Charlotte (Oakdale). I try to ride some of the less traveled roads on this side of town, but I also ride through Dilworth & other surrounding areas. Since I'm just getting back into riding, most of my rides are 6-10 miles and rather slow, but I plan on working my way up to longer rides as I progress. Best Wishes.

    10 Wheels,
    the Ross is the bike that I ride the most, as it fits me the best. The Miyata is in VGC, but is too small, and the Panasonic needs tires, a tune up and is a bit too large. Best Wishes.

    Ron

    I love the Ross colour scheme, but you must get a proper matching water bottle

    I am in accordance with this!

    You should post your photos in the Classic & Vintage forum, too.

    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
