Howdy from Maine

Hello all!

New to the forums and new to Maine. I moved here from Austin, TX where I was an everyday commuter for several years. When I moved I had to get rid of my cheap and trusty KHS urban-x as well as most of my other things. After nearly a year without riding I finally got my hands on a $30 Schwinn Le Tour that I plan on fixing up. Can't wait to get back in the saddle. I'm certain y'all will be hearing plenty from me as I tinker with the new ride.

Cheers!

I will! I used to think I could bike in any kind of weather. 110 degrees? No problem! Raging thunderstorm? Bring it on! Then I moved to a place where Winter Happens. Holy cow!
