27 here. A few years ago I moved out into a rough neighborhood and the next week my car died. I bought an old Bianchi Strada LX and started riding/bussing to work until I realized I was faster than the bus! 15 miles both ways for a few years and I was hooked. My preference for vintage started off as cheapness but as I grew to understand bicycles the aesthetics and qualities of vintage bikes more and more appealed to me. Plus the geometries on large vintage bikes works well with my proportions (looooong legs in relation to my torso)

Unrelated question: Are their any regional C&V meetups that happen regularly, or touring groups that come together via this forum? I'm usually a lurker and y'all old grouches are just the type I'd love to kick back a beer (or whiskey) with.
