Introduction

Hi all

I am a long time vintage bike rider. I built a late 1980s/90s Nishiki MTB into a City/Tourer and rode that for many years. I just recently got a very nice 1983 23" Bridgestone T700. It has such different geometry, I feel I'm learning to ride all over again. I'm an older Clydesdale who has had a lifelong love of "riding my bike". My life has been preserved several times because I was wearing a helmet. My goals are having fun, losing some of my "clydesdaleness" and daily commuting as opposed to going far and fast.
