    Newb from Ohio

    Name: Brooks Church
    Age: 23
    Location: New Albany, OH
    Occupation: Firefighter/ Paramedic
    Hobbies: Racing/ Drifting/ Xbox 360

    Just bought my first road bike!

    Viscount Aerospace G.P.



    First day went on a 8 mile ride. Loved it. But the seat is terrible.
    -sooo bought a VELO white saddle seat for it!

    Now looking into doing a Single Speed 700c Conversions with white wheels and red tires and chain!

    Welcome to the forum. That is a classic, you might want to consider keeping it in it's original form. Does it have the Aluminum "death fork" or one of the chromed steel replacements. That looks like a higher end model, I love those cranksets that they came with. Red and white seems fitting for a firefighter/ paramedic.

    You should post this in the classic and vintage forum, they will love it!

    Yep, that is pretty rare huh? It's cool to see another forum member from the area. If you ever want a hand or need to use a bike tool shoot me a PM.

    Oh wait, are you in Canton or Lancaster?

    I lived in Canton for most of my life about 29 years, I live in Lancaster, PA now. I know some Keller's though if that's your last name.

    Yes, that is my last name. My dad Mark is a graduate of Perry High School. He has a brother (Jeff) and two sisters (Kris and Joan). There are a bunch of other Kellers running around but those are my immediate relatives.

    Hey Brooks,

    Glad to meet someone from Ohio on this forum. I had visited there several years ago.

    Thanks for the welcome. Been doing like 20+ miles about 3 times a week around OSU campus and some trails.

    Broke some stuff on it and now don't have all the viscount symbols on the bolts.

    Welcome ! from another former buckeye of the Cinci variety. That is a fine looking bicycle. I especially like the chain-rings/cranks.
