Hello All

The 'dadleywiggins' tag was given by my kids, not entirely complimentary methinks. I've cycled regularly since I was 11, 37 years ago. Year round, all weathers, my main mode of transport. Many different bikes, currently passionate about a mystery Italian frame;early 1990's plain guage tubing (Columbus Gara ?), mudguard eyes & clearance ( great ! - Gilles Berthoud fitted). Built up as 1x9 flat bar, Brooks saddle, period Ultegra hubs/Ambrosio rims, carradice saddle bag, etc.
Sir Bradley probably wouldn't win a TDF stage on it, but then I probably wouldn't win on his bike so we're even.

Welcome to the forums, I hope you'll find them as informative and entertaining as myself.

My daughter affectionately calls me "Daddles", she's 17.

Welcome to Bike Forums! When you get the chance, cruise by the classic and vintage section we have here, ask them about your bike. There's so much knowledge there, you'll learn quite a bit!
