Hello from Phoenix

Hi everyone! New member checking in from the desert. I live in Tempe, part of the Phoenix metro area. I'm here to tap some of the resident experts about the bikes I have.

My oldest bike is a 1980-something Basso. I'm really spoiled, as it was left over from a relative's messy breakup, and given to me before I was big enough to ride it. I still ride it to this day. Beautiful Italian bike. I'd like to figure out exactly what year and model it is, so I'll start a separate thread on that.



My daily is a 1991 Schwinn Paramount. Panasonic, not Waterford. I've put more than five thousand miles on it since I bought it in 2014, mostly commuting to work. It's a real nice bike to ride, and it's not especially valuable or collectible. No need to feel bad about riding the heck out of it.



I also am waiting for some parts for a 1983 Fuji Del Rey project I just picked up, which will probably replace the Schwinn.

Thanks for the welcomes, everybody! Sorry for the delay. I kinda forgot I signed up here, but now I have questions. I'll make separate threads.
