Ok, so maybe old is relative.
. I have a 25 year old heart in a 45 year old body......
I tend the keep and ride bikes for a while. Started out with a Ross Grand Tour back in the early 80's, then bought a Bianchi in college and raced that for a while. 'upgraded' to an early Cannondale. I loved that bike, but it beat the crap out of me!
Exited cycling after my Uncle who introduced me to the sport was killed on his bike. Sold the Dale and started playing with old cars.......
Got back in a few years ago with an eBay special. I built my current Raleigh Competiton frame off of eBay parts, Ultegra, etc. the bike is a hybrid aluminum/carbon fiber frame. It's a nice ride, but I'm looking for something more classic. It is spurred on even more with my riding partner/neighbor buying a new Trek Madone 5.4. He thinks riding a steel bike is like driving a model T, so that motivates me even more.
Besides, I tend to like old things - old cars, old airplanes, and old bikes......
