    Hi, I'm new here

    I found this forum by googling World Voyageur & it looks cool so I just signed up.

    I grew up in the Milwaukee area, now I'm in Ohio.

    My bike history...
    Schwinn Varsity - had my first touring experience with sleeping bag but I didn't own a tent. Of course it rained that night.

    1973 World Voyageur - first "good" bike. I upgraded it piece by piece until the only things left were the crank arms & seatpost.

    I discovered the League of American Wheelmen, club rides, proper touring, centuries, etc...

    1981 Trek 700 - finally it was time to upgrade the frame, so I swapped everything from the Voyageur:
    Phil Wood hubs, bottombracket, pedals
    Campy Record brakes, front derailleur, seatpost
    Cinelli bars
    Huret Duopar (Ti) rear derailleur

    (rode like that forever meanwhile working & having kids)

    2010 Fuji carbon Team Pro
    (can't afford a Ferrari for a midlife crisis)
