Hello from New Orleans!
New to the forum. I ride a 2004 Gunnar Rock Hound set up for commuting with full fenders, recently ordered a Tubus rack and hope to do some touring on it in the fall.
Also occasionally take out my 1988 Gitane Team Pro, with Reynolds 531C, Campy C-Record (including Cobalto brakes--stones are lost, of course) and a flashy if somewhat old paint job from Joe Bell.
I do a lot of riding around the city, mainly commuting, and also run some races, 5K, 10K, half and full marathons. Thinking about ditching my motorcycle (haven't owned a car for years) to devote more time to the bicycling.
I'll try to post some pics on the MTB and vintage forums in the coming days. Glad to finally be here.
