Newb from Michigan

Hi everyone, I'm new to the site I just started getting into older 10-speed bikes.

I picked up what I believe is a 70's Ross Professional Grand Tour, I've learned it's not the most rare bike and doesn't have the best quality parts but I figured it would make a good starter bike since everything works on it.

I'll post pics a little later.

I'm located just south of Detroit and I look forward to learning and gaining a lot more information from this site .

Welcome!
Thanks!

I just picked up another bike today on CL for $20 but it's just a parts bike and not worthy of pictures lol.

That looks exactly like the one I gave away a couple years ago and just traded back for. While I realize that it is a low-end steel frame, and middlin' components at best, I loved that bike and sought it out. Have fun with it. Just ditch those "safety" levers.

More important that you ride than what you ride. Kinda like guitars.
