    Greetings from another new member

    Hi. My name is Greg, and I live in Richmond BC. My bicycling interests are titanium bikes and hybrids.

    I have a recently purchased Norco Monterey hybrid that I am upgrading with better forks and components, an old-school Colnago road bike, a "fixie", an early 80's vintage Mikado Mtn. bike that is presently disassembled awaiting the acquisition of upgraded components, and am seriously setting aside all my spare change for a comfortable fast nimble titanium road bike that will outlast me.

    I also own, ride and restore motorcycles, and presently have two Ducati's, an 888 that I've owned since new, and an old early 70's single cylinder 250cc Scrambler.

    I spend more time riding the bicycles though, now that I am old enough to have a healthy respect for my own mortality, and great awe at having survived this past few decades of total lunacy.

    Not much else to say....for now.

    What do you have in mind? I'm actually looking for exactly the same sort of bike.

    I had a Ducati 250 scrambler in 1967. Was that ever a ***** to start, and with an essentially unmuffled exhaust, was it ever piercing loud! Better off with push bikes (as the Brits and Ozzies call them), titanium or otherwise, that with those Italian death machines. ZNiot to mentioon their other ant-social aspects.

    So have you set your sites on anything specific in that respect or are you still researching? The prospective titanium road bike, I mean.
