Hello BF, my new BFF!

Hey there BikeForums, I'm a Chicago-based long time cyclist, first time forumist. I've been reading the forums a lot recently, so decided it was time to sign myself up.

For years my ride had been a Trek 820 mountain bike that I purchased new over 15 years ago. Growing up it was a great all-around bike, and ever since I moved to Chicago it served well as a rugged urban ride. For a while I've been thinking of upgrading to a road bike, and recently my trusty Trek was stolen...it looks like it's time to finally pull the trigger.

So now I'm in the market for a (likely used/vintage) road bike. I'll be posting questions, and scouring this site for answers until I find the right cycle...and when I do, I'll probably post some photos.

In the meantime, glad to be here, and see you in the forums.

Thanks, and will do! Actually I have my eye on an Austro-Daimler SL, and I've started a thread with some questions...if you have any info, please feel free to add your 2 cents:
