    Hello from Tilburg, the Netherlands, Europe

    hi bike/cycling fans

    my name is peter valkema and i live in holland in the city of tilburg, about 5 kms from the belgian border. so that's not bad, as both holland and belgium are cycling crazy countries that grind to a complete halt during (for instance) the tour de france.

    i've been cycling all my life (school run, racing, bmx, mountainbiking, commuting etc.) as are most dutchies, but recently i have bitten by the fixed gear bug. this sparked another interest: vintage road bikes from the 1970's en '80's.

    this forum has been a great help in finding facts and history about different brands and parts, and a general inspiration bacause i'm glad to see so many people into riding (and) bikes!

    cheers
    peter v


    o yeah, recent activity is pictured here: http://picasaweb.google.nl/pjvalkema/Fixies# (includes the slaughter of possibly nice classic road bikes, i must admit... but i enjoy creating a new style for them and if they're really beautiful i wouldn't 'fix them' or at least keep the braze-ons etc. intact!)

    Cheers and welcome to the Forums!

    It seems you've been lurking for a while so you know your way around here already. Glad to see you take the plunge and start contributing too.

    Welcome.
    Nice bikes, Peter.
    Paint jobs look nice. Are you painting them yourself or do you have a contact for that work?
