New from Maine

My name is Jeromy and I'm 48 years old,
Until this past year the last time I rode a bicycle was when I got my drivers license and I gave away my 1985 Haro master to a classmate, yes I gave it away!
Last fall I found a 66 or 67 grants department stores Eldorado/Huffy with a tank for free on someone's lawn and I cleaned it up over the winter.

Since then my girlfriend and I have started riding daily, and I very much look forward to all of the knowledge and advice from everyone on the forum and I look forward to sharing my other finds.

As of now our bicycles are.

66/67 Huffy Eldorado

1989 Trek antelope 800

90s Iron Horse mt100

90s trek snap on tools limited

1979/80 Fuji sports 12

2012 trek 8 series

2018 trek fx

Welcome Jeromy,
I'm from MA originally, presently up from Florida enjoying some cooler weather. You will find a wealth of information here regardless of what you ride. I am always learning something about a bike I own or one that I might be interested in buying. Most replies are from a point of knowledge and experience; many others given a caveat of "to the best of my knowledge", or "if I recall correctly", etc. Enjoy your time here.

Thank you for the welcome everyone,
I am getting ready to put the bikes in storage for the upcoming winter and decide which ones will stay to tinker on.
My girlfriend bless her heart doesn't mind me having a couple of them in our apartment, she was thinking two but I picked up a couple over the weekend and we are living with six as of right now.
