    Greetings to My Fellow Bicycle Enthusiasts!

    I just wanted to say "hi" and thank you for this opportunity to participate in the Bike Forums. I have been riding enthusiastically since I bought my first "racing" bicycle, a new Schwinn Continental, with money saved from my paper route in 1969. I used to race for the Michiana Cycle Racing Team while a student at the University of Notre Dame. My last (real) race was a criterium here in Austin, Texas, back in the late 1980's, where I competed on my mint 1963 Schwinn Paramount track bicycle. Just sold that this fall - still in mint condition -> http://s1080.photobucket.com/albums/...ack%20Bicycle/
    My current bicycles are a 1982 Eddy Merckx Corsa I bought new in Chicago, a Cannondale Super-V 1000 mountain bike, a 2011 Cannondale Road Tandem, and a 1995 Nashbar mountain tandem. I'm looking for another fixed-gear bike to replace the Paramount (I was afraid to ride it, it was so nice). I look forward to interacting with this group, sharing my knowledge and learning from you.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

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