I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to bikes. Worked on classic cars in the past though so I know how to turn a wrench, just not a crank puller ;-) Anyway I ride most days on an old beater Chimo from the late 70s. I just picked up a Terrot and have been trying to get it on the road (see my post in vintage). I just joined the Boise Bicycle Project here in town...it's on the order of a bicycle coop but also provides refurbished bikes to needy people. See you on the forums!
