New to Site : Greetings From Memphis TN / Vintage Road Bike Enthusiast

Greetings,

I have been looking at this site for so long, as a resource for repair and values. I thought I should go ahead and join.
I am not a racer, or a high end bicycle owner. I ride daily, mostly short commutes and errands. I only use my car if
its long distance or items need hauling. I own an upgraded Raleigh Grand Prix, and a Nishiki Marina. I love vintage
road bikes. It is the best way for someone with my budget to get a good value. I have just taken my Nishiki (mostly)
apart for a paint job and overhaul. I am sure this site will be helpful in connecting with more knowledgeable people
regarding my rebuild. Pictures will be uploaded soon. Thanks

-Pete

Hi Pete,

I am currently living in Honolulu but grew up in Memphis, just wanted to say hello! What part of the city are you riding in?

Hi,
I am riding in the midtown area, around cooper-young, and I make the short ride to the University of Memphis campus.
I enjoy the town so far. However, I have to say there is a lot of broken glass on the roads, and a severe lack of bike lanes!

We are so much alike it's crazy. Go to the Classic and Vintage forum. That's where I spend most of my time since I enjoy older 10 speeds as well!
