Greetings from Sweden!

Hello bikers!
I'm from Stockholm/Sweden. I have just finished two year studies, and before my studies began, I found an old racer with a dent in both the top tube and and down tube, crashed, but with all parts in good shape. I bought an old Nishiki frame that used to carry the same group, Shimano 600, and it's a pretty good bike!



To be able to commute during the colder seasons I'm going to buy a Surly LHT. It's the only complete touring bicycle made of steel that is available here in Sweden. We ship our steel to america, and they make a work of art and ship it back for us to ride, it's a perfect symbiosis! :D
The plan is to take a bike tour through europe next summer, and never ever again buy the overpriced commuter bus/subway card we have here in Stockholm, those days are sooo over.
