Hello from Paris France

Hi all,
New cyclist here, actually old cyclyst resuming but new member here ^^
I'm joining to learn more about bikes in general as I decided to built my own bike, I've ridden mostly MTB and vintage road bike (italian Faggin frames) until now and will start with a Colnago road bike and why not a gravel bike next

Soyez le bienvenue.

If you still like old bikes, you should spend some time in C&V. Old MTBs make great gravel bikes. So do old road bikes if you don't mind doing a 650b conversion.

Hi both,
Thank you very much for the warm welcome and the advice, I'll definitely check it out -> for the gravel I thought about converting one of my Faggin road bike frame but currently I'm more eyeing a used titanium frame from ebay but finding one at an affordable price might be another story entirely ^^
