Introduction of Balmain

My name is David and I am 63yrs and reside in Sydney, Australia, about 9 months ago I had
surgery to remove my left kidney as I had a malignant tumor on it,it's amazing how one can survive with only one kidney.
I only mention this fact as it lead me to take up cycling to aid my recovery, so I swapped my four wheels for two wheels. Thank you Lance Armstrong for your inspiration.
The bike I have is a 19" Giant Rincon MB.

Welcome to BikeForums. LA is a great inspiration for many.
One of my favorite cycling quotes is, "Cycling Keeps Me Young". It works for me. I'm 64. I hope it will work for you.

And Jesus looking upon them saith, "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." - Mark 10:27

G'day David.

My office is in Balmain. I used to live in Birchgrove.

Probably seen you around.

I take it the Giant came from Cranks?
