    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.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    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:
