    New to the Bike Scene

    Hey everyone,

    I've been looking for a hobby and I think that I'm gonna give repairing and riding bikes a shot.

    I don't have any experience with bike repair, but I'm pretty handy and think I'll pick it up pretty fast.

    My project for the next couple of months is to get my dad's old Raleigh Roadster in working condition. I've been reading around here and it looks like there's a lot of knowledgeable people here to help me out.

    Any tips where I should get started would be great!!

    Thanks in advance!

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to BF. The folks in the Bike Mechanics and Classic & Vintage forums should be a lot of help. Also www.parktool.com and www.sheldonbrown.com.
