Introduction Old/New Rider

Hi All,

I am a very active 41 year old and I was recently re-introduced to Bicycle riding due to a shoulder injury from martial arts. First time in nearly 20 years since I have been on a road bike and I forgot how much I missed it. I am a husband and father of two (4 and 5) and I jugle my time between my wife's Master's swimming, biking, work and judo practice with my son (my daughter is not quite old enough for judo yet). My winter projects include building a 2005 Fuji Team Pro and a relic (70ish) Fiorelli with campagnolo components. I look forward to reading posts and ongoing dicussions on this forum.

The Fiorelli is old. The parts were considered high performance (30 some years ago). Just a side project and I hope to have it together and ridable sometime this Spring. The Fuji will be my main ride and my priority. Should have that going before Winter ends. Neither are worth bragging about. Money and time will dictate the speed at which I complete these. I will post some pics once they are completed.
