Hi. I joined the forums just a few days ago but have been riding pretty much all my life. I still own the 1984 Takara Deluxe Touring that was my 16th birthday present and have upgraded a few things on it (wheels, tires, saddle, handle bars, pedals). I use it now as my commuter (25 miles each way). My regular road bike is a 1999 Trek 5200T bought used a few years ago. It's in the process of being rebuilt and modernized. Lastly, I have a 1999 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR also bought used at the same time as the Trek. I do all my own mechanical work and have started to tune and fix the neighbors bikes.
Lately I've been riding mostly on the road on the Trek doing a nice 30 mile loop of rolling hills near the house with occasional longer rides throughout the County.
