    Hello from Sweden

    Hi all!!!
    I am a reborn cyclist, have'nt ridden a bike in almost 10 years, (driver licence) and as i found out, i really missed it.
    So now i am back in the saddle with a thing for vintage racers and fixies.

    /Thanks

    Welcome to the forum - I am a newbie here as well and back to riding more regularly - If I remember Sweden does not know a frame smaller than 64cm - Ha - Not really - But most of the guys I knew from there long ago were tall and rode large bikes - In the 70s military guys from Sweden doing temporary duty at the American Base in Vicenza Italy used to get bikes made at a small bike shop there "Liotto" - They used to laugh cause the guys in the shop were about 165cm tall trying to measure up a guy 185 to 190cm tall - At that time a custom made "Tuto Campagnolo" bike would cost about $300.00 US if you threw in a couple of cartons of cigarettes and some liqueur - Welcome back to biking - Vintage bikes are the only way to go...

    Welcome to Bike Forums! What kind of bike do you have?

    Stop by the Classic & Vintage forum and post some photos of your bike.
