I put up with a truly terrible bike for many years. I went to buy a new bike recently and found one just right for me. The only problem was it was really boring, and I could not bring myself to shell out the cash for something that I felt so disinterested in. So, I’ve started tinkering with old bikes. I have often found answers to my questions in this forum, so I thought I would join you all. I truly love my 531 based bike and will continue to try and maintain and improve it with your help. Perhaps one day I will know enough to help someone else. Thanks to all those who contribute to the forum.
