Just wanted to introduce myself as requested by the website admin.
I am a recreational 52 year old rider from Cincinnati, Ohio. I've ridden just for relaxation for years, nothing serious. After I gave up my Harley's recently, I became involved more in bicycles. I just built a recumbent from some scrap 10 speeds. On my hunt for cheap 10 speeds for my project, I found a nice Miyata 112 for $10 that was in too good of shape to chop. So, I started researching and made it my standard bike. Previously I was riding an old Claridge which best I can tell is a Chinese bike from the 70's. I love the Miyata and based on the catalogs, I can only find that model in 1990. Anyways, looking forward to discussions here. Best regards, Doug
