The first step is admitting you have a problem...
Hi, I'm Ken & I'm a bikeaholic. I'm a 42 year old out of shape construction worker. After a 20 year layoff I have rediscovered my love for cycling. My goal last spring was to find an old trek in a dumpster or at a garage sale & return it to its former glory (I once owned a shiny new 1982 trek 613) I grew impatient after a week or so & purchased a new Surly LHT. I was hooked, riding almost daily on the bike trail near my house. My wife has supported my habit, riding with me a few nights a week & taking longer weekend rides. Something else happened- almost immediately after purchasing my Surly, I began to find beat up vintage treks. they were too good to pass up! My garage is now filled with bikes & parts. my most recent acquisition is a 1993 Bridgestone XO-1 in real rough shape I plan on restoring this one. I'm not very knowledgeable about repair & hope to rely on other members help to get my bridgestone road worthy once again.Happy New Year, Ken
