Chip from S.W. Va.

Hi, I've just found this site and it's been helpful already. I picked up a all original Raleigh Super Record Mixte, made in Japan, at the local Goodwill. I realize it's not the finest bike represented on the forum, but I love it and am having a lot of fun riding. New tires, grease, adjustments and it rides like new. Paint and chrome are nearly perfect. I have COPD so I only ride on a local bike trail which is fairly level, since I haven't enough breath for the hills. Looking forward to reading more of the forum and especially info on the Super Record Mixtes.

Welcome Chip.

I'm originally from the north central part of WV - Fairmont and went to school in Morgantown.

You'll finds lots of good information here.
