Hello From Minnesota

Hello from Minnesota, USA. I thought I'd post about my first fixit project - a 1991 Schwinn Mirada. Nothing special by any measure. It was free from a garage sale years ago. I replaced the 25yr old tires, bottom bracket bearings, and handgrips. The thought is my son can use this for work and/or college in a year or two. As I mentioned it is nothing special but after a tune up and new grease it is a pretty solid working ride and good for traversing the neighborhoods.

Now, I need to figure out how to add the pics to my posts...

Welcome to Bike Forums. What about a bike for you?
Here's a bit of information about posting pics. Really very easy.

welcome to the forums...nothing special about it other than it was something you enjoyed doing... and that is what makes it special.

Thanks for the link on how to add pictures. Here are two of the finished Schwinn. I had to resize the pics so hopefully they turn out alright in the post.



My bike would be either of two depending on where I am going to ride. I have an old Trek 6000 Al mountain bike from 1991 and in the background of the 2nd pic is a white Ficelle road bike that I built in the early 80s when I was running a bicycle sales and repair shop. Both of those Ficelle bikes need a lot of TLC so they are my next project for this winter.

Cheers!
