Hello from Texas?
Im 37 and married with three children under 5, that means I haven't had a full night sleep in 5 years. Ultra cycling has always been something I wanted to do, but haven't ever owned a bike. well about a month ago I lost my work truck to the economic turn-down, so I decided to get a bike to start computing to work. I have this far away plan of riding across Texas before Im 40.
Im real big into rec paintball, not the stuff you see on ESPN. Im into woods ball, All of my markers are old school markers. Old school markers also require maineace, i love tinkering. So when it came time to buy my first bike I wanted a classic. I found a Raleigh Super Course 555 Reynolds, everything is all original. It still has all its stickers on the forks, wheels, pedals and frame. The bar tape is even original. I have a buddy who enjoys the tinkering and the science of cycling like I do with a paintball marker, he told me from the looks of the sprockets this bike has some low mileage on it.
Anywho I will be doing allot of searching on this forum for parts compatibility and asking allot of questions, I hope I can bring something to the table for yall.
