Early 30s. Moved to a town with very rough roads, so my Cannondale was painful to ride on my daily commute. This prompted me to acquire my first steel bike which happened to be vintage. Now I've come to prefer the vintage bikes to modern ones, for a cost of slight weight penalty, these bikes are more comfortable and handle just as well the the modern ones. This slowly grew into me wanting to dry different manufacturers from different countries and because vintage bikes are very cheap (I rarely spend more than $100), my daily commuter quickly grew into a small vintage bike collection. This also forced me to learn mechanic skills, even to the point where I am able to build my own wheels. Fun hobby overall!
