hello from Boston!

Hey all, finally got around to joining. So, I'm an old steel junkie - my faves are a 1985 De Rosa pro SLX & a Giordana TT pursuit bike with C-Record stuff. Also have a gaspipe Peugeot for commuting, a used up Bianchi Veloce I still run on rainy days, and a pile of frames and parts.

Mostly I preserve and (only when necessary) restore these old beauties, and this forum has been AWESOME for helping with the details. So, thanks all, and hope to talk soon.

Some bikes I've done:

Yep it's a 9-mile commute to work on my Pooh Joe, but it's east/west so I only do it in the 6 higher-sun months. Otherwise I am staring at the sun the entire time, and cars can't see me well. I am looking at moving my biz to the Newton/Needham line which is a bit closer, and the N/S commute means I can extend the bike season a bit.

WN is great. Wifey and I often walk to the square for date night when we can pawn off the kids with someone.
