My name is Michael and I live in Talent, OR. I have been into cycling for many years. I have had a bike since I was 4. So lets see that's 37 years of riding bikes. I have raced mountain bikes and done some triathalons but that was in my younger days. I just recently acquired a a 1997 Bianchi Trofeo from a craigslist offer locally. The frame and most of the components were in good shape. This bike is why I found this forum. Lots of great past articles to help figure some stuff out on older and newer bikes. Thanks for all the help and look forward to being a part of this community. I am also looking forward to many miles on my Bianchi. Southern Oregon is a beautiful place to ride, many miles of bike paths and bike lanes through forest, vineyards, farms and valleys as well as big mountain climbs. Enjoy!
