Not so newbie!

Hello from West Texas. Middle age made me start something new in life, so I picked up biking to keep in shape. I hate to see old bikes rotting away so I have salvaged six in the last year or so. Most are low to mid end entry level type road bikes, but its been fun. Have a '87 Schwinn World Sport, '77 Motobecane Super Mirage, early 70's Schwinn Continental, '82 Peugeot Grand Sport, and a small kids universal Peugeot with training wheels. All are original minus tires and some cables. I'm currently working on an '84 Nishiki Mixte, and looking at a "Rolls" super racer, which I dont know much about. I've been reading a lot of the posts in the forum since I started this venture and finally got the chance to register with you all. Thanks for a great source of information...

Thanks Guys, El Paso is where I call home. Great riding weather if you go around sevenish. I guess pretty much like your neck of the woods GeoBigJon.

El Paso is beautiful, don't like the wind, dust, and smog from Juarez and when those aren't happening you can enjoy being outside in El Paso.
