    New Person From Texas

    Hi everyone,
    I just bought my first road bike after not riding for many years. Its a Kabuki Skyway from 1980 or so, its the perfect size since it is a 67cm frame. I plan on stripping it down and rebuilding it into a bike with personality. I've been looking at a bunch of websites online so hopefully they'll have the information I need to complete my project, if not I'm sure I'll be posting on the site.

    I'm moving downtown and parking a car would be a giant pain so I thought using a bike to commute most places would be more convenient.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    What part of Texas? Considering the roads in many areas of the state, you may want to consider a hybrid for short-to-medium commuting, and save the road bike for roads you've already checked out and found to not be too poorly maintained. Replacing wheels on a regular basis isn't fun.

    check out the Classic & Vintage sub forum here. Lots of information about older bikes.
