    Sort of new, in Eastern NC

    Hey, all.

    I've used the forums occasionally for a few years now, but I'm starting to get quite a bit more into it, so I suppose it's time for a real introduction.

    So, I'm Brian, in Greenville, NC (the username dates from when I lived in Charlottesville, VA).

    I've been a daily bike commuter for ten years and pretty much never use a car in town, even here in the sprawly South.

    My usual bike is a 1984 Peugeot P8, made more commuter-friendly with Nitto moustache bars, Suntour barcons, Zefal half-fenders, and Wald folding baskets. It's out of commission at the moment with a totaled rear derailleur. Anybody got a Sachs Huret Eco (for a standard / Campy hanger...no claw) lying around?

    I also have a 1980 Raleigh DL-1 roadster (recreational use only -- I don't quite trust the rod brakes with heavy loads, although I suppose millions of people in Asia and Africa do it every day) and an early-'90s Diamondback hybrid I use when the others are broken.

    I also supply my fiancee with bikes, which she tolerates. Just finished fixing up a 1957 Raleigh Sports for her; her daily commuter is my mom's ca. 1961 Atala.

    I'm doing some bike advocacy work with the city council here in Greenville and am getting certified as a LAB traffic safety instructor soon.

    So, there you go. Cheers!

    Brian

    Welcome Brian.
    Have you stopped by the Southeast Regional subforum to say hello to the locals? Lots of NC folks there.
