Hey everybody!

Cool looking forum. I hope to learn a lot here :-)

So, heres a brief bit about myself. I live in Oregon, which for non-summer biking means cold and lots of rain. I use my bike for around town transportation which is awesome. Me and some friends also took a 100 mile round trip. I was surprised at how doable it actually was.

I've always enjoyed riding bikes, and when I started college it became my primary source of transportation. A couple of my friends had road bikes, and when I found one at garage sale for 5 bucks, I decided to jump on it.

The bike is a old (70's?) Puegeot. When I got it, it rode really smooth. It has some rust, but all in all it works great to just get around on. Although now it has some slop in it, which I'm getting ready to fix. A year ago I did some adjusting and put new cables/tubes on it.

Anywho, hey everybody! Looking forward to discussing stuff with you all.

Hello Vissthew, I see you have already explored the C & V forum! We always enjoy figuring out the various Peugeots--it sometimes seems as if a different model was made every day !

Welcome to BF!
