Hi from Boston!

Hey all!
I'm originally from Westchester, New York, but I'm up in Boston for my third year of college. I've been riding for most of my life now, but only recently got a real bike that I'm really proud of.

My dad used to work at a shop in Washington DC in the 70's called Big Wheel. While he was there, he built a bike for my sister, and last summer he found it in his parents' basement and gave it to me!

It's a blue Zeus frame, with all kinds of weird parts. I've got a Brooks saddle, Suntour deraileurs in front & back, Weinmann brake up front & Zues in back, Sunshine hubs, ttt handlebars, and Universal brake levers.

I think everything's from the mid-to-late 70's, but I'm not really sure, and he doesn't remember. Sadly, the sister he built the bike for is no longer around, so I can't ask her.

Anyway, I know this is just the intro thread, but I figured that's a pretty good indicator of where I'm coming from. Hi!

Cool! A Zeus owner! I just joined this site recently and find it a terrific resource for all things on two, or even three wheels.

Cheers,

Essex
