    Hey from a Seattle newb.

    *thumps the mic*

    Hi there.

    I'm from Seattle. It's a hilly place and I live between the top and the bottom of one of the biggest hills. This may or may not be the reason my beautiful red '70s Schwinn Hollywood spends most of her time in storage, which makes me cry a little on the inside.

    Currently shopping for a vintage road bike with "gears," which I understand can be helpful when traveling on an incline.

    Cheers jessibee, welcome to BikeForums. Check out the Classic and Vintage subforum (if you haven't already) for lots of info on vintage road bikes. You are correct about the "gear" thingy.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Thanks to both of you!

    I look forward to poking around the forums and learning from those of you who've been riding for a while. :)
