    Hi

    Hello all,

    I'm a bike commuter in Boston. I've been riding my Raleigh 3 speed for a number of years, and just decided to get a road bike for longer rides. With some good advice from the forums here, I just picked up a late 80s (89, I think, based on the catalogs) Schwinn Traveler.

    I paid 175 for it. Totally 80s-tastic color scheme, with the red/silver/red fade. Traveler.jpg
