Hello from Eindhoven, NL

Hello!
I am originally from Sydney, Australia, though now living in Eindhoven, Nederlands.
With such a strong cycling culture in the Netherlands, I figured it was time to jump on a forum and see what's around!
Mostly interested in vintage race/tour bikes, and custom creations. I like restoring/rebuilding so will be looking for advice and parts at some stage.

Current bikes are a Giant MTB ATX-850 (dodgily) converted to a single-speed, for getting around town.
I just picked up a winter project, a Giant Pacer (c.1985 I think??). Will post some photos when I've hit the 10 posts!

Interested to see if there are any flea markets/bike shows coming up in the Netherlands as we get towards spring / summer.

Howdy!
I spent a few months there for work some years back and still fondly recollect the cycling culture there.
Quite different from here in the US, to say the least.

Welcome to the forums!
Ahh nice! Every where is so flat it makes it really accessible! The winter months can be a bit wet and grim though!
