    Boise Newbie to this site...

    Hello all,

    I've joined this forum to learn more about my latest newfound addiction, vintage commuter bikes. I've just pulled an old Raleigh from my father in laws garage, and already have 10 days commuting on her. Pumped up the tires, adjusted the saddle and brakes, lubed the chain, and bingo.

    I've added aluminum wheels and a MagicShine lighting system for commuting. I love the ride of this big heavy old girl, and will be adding a Donkey Boxx soon.photo (4).jpg

    1979 Raleigh Sprite, almost completely stock. Added alloy Wienmann 27" wheelset. Looking for leather Brooks spring saddle, and about to add a Donkey Boxx. Attempting to commute through the winter.

    Greetings from the desert SW.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.
