Hello from Portland

Hi all. I’m a year-round bike commuter/walker with an interest in vintage bikes and cycling infrastructure. I currently own three bikes: an early ‘70s Nishiki 10-speed is my main ride but I also have an early ‘60s Allegro and a (probably) ‘60s Sears 3-speed (made in Austria by Puch).

I’ve been riding around Portland since 1999. I used to think I was lucky to be a cyclist in a city like Portland, but visiting Copenhagen kind of ruined Portland for me! Oh well, it could be worse.

Thanks! Yes I’ve been browsing that forum for ages, long before I finally signed up for an account here. I’m working on getting ten posts/comments so I can post photos of my bikes soon!
