Hello, from Mississauga, Canada!

Grew up in the Mississauga area and started cycling after reading about Steve Bauer coming in 2nd place in the 1984 Olympics Road Race. Further motivated when he came 4th in the 1988 TdF. My first bike was a red Raleigh Super Grand Prix. Got a little bit into mountain biking, but then took many many years off due to work and travel. Trying to get back in, but need to get a new bike and get some motivation as well.

Depending on the bike market in your area, take your time finding a new bike. Maybe even see about building one with your LBS. There's still deals to be found but with shortages and some extra price gouging on Craigslist it takes an extra minute. Hope getting back out there goes well!

Thanks! I'm half and half on selling it actually. Just don't have space for it in the house.
