new to the forum

Hi,
58 years old, and riding for over 50 of those years, with a 10 year break, when a mountain bike would have done the trick, but was not yet in existence. I currently reside in Mérida, Yucatán, México, and don't own a motor vehicle. I recently bought a Schwinn?? World Sports 1978, Mfg. in Taiwan, by Giant. The search for this bike's origins brought me many times to this forum. This is my Sunday bike. I also have a '93 Giant Prodigy town bike, a 3 wheeled cargo trike, and a folding Mercurio, these last two of Méxican origin.

Hello seedabelize,
58 is not old.
Neat collection of bikes that you ride.
Post some pics if you have a camera.
Thanks for joining.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I have been all over this site, looking for a ' pictures and albums' link from the user control panel. Either the user control panel link doesn't work, and it's taking me somewhere else, or my user control panel doesn't have that link. It's not in my profile, not in my account, nowhere. Maybe it's been shut down for some reason.

Howdy and welcome to the forums.

I would like to have one of those cargo trikes myself, just for fun. I have one of the Worksman type, built on a different principle, and they are fun to ride around on occasion. The topic comes up in the "Utility Biking" subform on occasion.

I could find no place specifically to post pictures, so I'm putting them up here.
