    Greetings from SW CT

    During a spectacular biking tour from Newcastle to Edinburgh this past May, I rediscovered the wonder of the steel frame bicycle. I shopped for a few weeks and found a one-owner 1966 Schwinn Super Sport in great shape. Although barely ridden, at 44 years old, the bike needed stem to stern inspection and attention.

    Naturally, from the day it arrived and I began the process of making it roadworthy once again, Bike Forums became an indispensable part of my life! This is a great community and an essential resource, and I'm happy to be onboard.

    Photos of the 66 SS posted here:

    All best, abchurch
