Hello from Mississippi (Southern US of A)

Hello, from Mississippi!


Some years back I purchased a Raleigh DL-1 and fell in love with British 3 speeds specifically, and British steel as a whole. As of late I have gotten more into the English club bikes and derailleurs have made their way into my collection. I have multiple Raleighs, multiple Hercules (Birmingham built), and have recently acquired a Coventry Eagle and a Claud Butler to round out the mix. And of course being in the USA, I have a half-dozen or so 40 plus year old Schwinns. So all in all, I rarely ride anything post disco era. Old bikes have been a great bonding experience for my son and I and I have made some lasting friendships because of them.

You are most likely one of the few people in the NE then that knows how to properly pronounce Biloxi.
