    Hello from Tucson

    I have just recently taken an interest in cycling thanks to my roommate. He has gotten me into cycling and I am going to pick up my first road bike this weekend. It is a 1989 Peugeot with 54cm Reynolds 501 frame,
    Shimano BioPace chainwheels, Shimano SIS drive train (12 speed) and Ambrosia wheels and hubs. I am excited to get into the sport and hope that my roommate and I can one day do the tour de tucson bike race. I look forward to getting to know some of you in the future!

    Hey there Desert Fox, WELCOME ! The '89 Peugeot with 501, very cool.. stylish.

    Perhaps a test ride is in order next time I'm out west. I weigh 378 lbs though.

    Haha. I trust the frame so a test ride seems in order. My favorite part about the bike though is that its Orange! Along with the tires, handle bar tape, and from pictures I have seen so are the brake calipers.

    I'm still deciding if I should charge you for finding that bike
    It never gets easier, you just go faster.
