    Hello from Des Moines Iowa

    Hello all,
    I am a gearhead bike nerd from Des Moines, IA. I have recently been bitten by the vintage steel bike bug, and have been having a blast. Last year, I had four aluminum bikes, and this year I have one alum, and nine steel bikes.

    List of bikes:
    88 Schwinn Prelude, tenax columbus tube, going to be my fixed gear bike
    88 Schwinn Le Tour, will be for sale soon
    83 Shciwinn Traveler, my current single speed
    72 Schwinn Continental, will be for sale soon
    70s Motobecane Super Mirage
    80s Motobecane Nomade, will be for sale soon
    77 Gitane Newport, love this bike. I might bag this one out.
    70s Trident, neat, but low end cheap bike, I am going to give away after it is tuned up
    70s Peugeot Mixte, dont know what I am going to do with this one
    06 Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo

    Looking for an Italian 531 or columbus tube bike. I would also like an Astro Daimler for the heck of it.

    Sometime soon, I am going to build a retro-direct bike. For those that do not know what that is, it is a two speed bike that you pedal forwards for one gear, and pedal backwards for the other gear.

    I am going to be picking up a 78 Schwinn Superior, an 88 Raleigh Tri-Lite Technium, an 80s Panasonic Sport 1000, and an 87 Schwinn Traveler next week.
