Kentucky newbie

Hello from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I am a daily rider commuting to work. Currently riding a diamondback sorrento I bought in a bike shop almost 30 years ago. Have an e-bike to arrive soon. Getting the most fun out of finding old steel bikes and doing restoration on them. Going to see a 1984 Schwinn Sprint tomorrow. Trying to learn as much as I can about the old bikes.

peppiace,
You are in the right place if you enjoy old steel bikes a lot of us share the same passion...also great to hear you still have a bike that you bought 30 yrs ago!

Welcome! Potential bike build in your future - instead of a burrito slayer you could build a bourbon or fired chicken slayer. Give it some thought.

Welcome to the forum!
Where in KY are you?
I spent 7 years living in Lexington and enjoyed the area very much.

Welcome! I am also in Lexington. I mostly ride and work on old vintage steel bikes, there is lots of information to be had on old bikes in the C&V section.
