Vintage and Classic

Hi,
Dave here from Iowa. If you have a 63cm bicycle and you post it for sale I will be forced to purchase it. Please only post the very best at the most extreme low price. I have an obsession (I call it my hobby) that I'm having trouble dealing with. I have made numerous promises that I have broken. I am working on finding somewhere I can hide the majority of my bicycles but have them still readily available. Is there a velodrome around here??

Anyway, hi from Iowa. I rode in the fresh snow today. I was still wishing it was 75 and sunny.....

Fortunately my bikes are 56-57 cm so you're safe; welcome. It was a good day to ride in IA. You should check out the C&V forum.

It was almost 75 here and it was sunny for most of the day too.

Funny story....I drove to Florida late last December, as in Christmas week, leaving my wife and family in Iowa to stay at the Central Motel in Inverness to ride the Withlacoochee trail. I was swimming at the motel, eighty five degrees and sunny while Iowa was having a blizzard.
