Good morning,

My name is Steve Seebold and I live in Laguna Niguel, CA. I am 63 years young, and I want to blow the dust off of my bike.

I have a 1994 Santana Soverign which I bought new in june of 1994. It was burnished aluminum then, and the stains it would get when I would sweat on it were unacceptable, so in 1996, I took the frame and fork to Joe Bell for a candy apple red paint job. Since then I have replaced almost every part on it, and at this point, the only Japanese parts on it are the pedals. All running gear except for the hubs and brakes are campy. The hubs are Phil Wood, and the brakes are Avid Arch Supremes.

My wife and I rode the bike a lot from 1994 until 1999 when I had to have a spinal fusion in my neck. The bike has hung on the wall since then. Last october, I went in for a physical and my doctor didn't like my EKG, so off I went to the cardiologist, and that ended up with a 5 way bypass and a aortic valve replacement.

I am anxious to start riding again, but I hate doing alone. I need to ride my single for a while to get some legs back, then I want to start with the tandem again.

There are a whole bunch of miles out there and they have my name written all over them.

Hello Steve, it sounds as if we are lucky to have you here! Check out the regional forums for SoCal--there's lots of rides going on there all the time, and there's probably one near you.

Also, could we see a photo of the Santana? A Joe Bell paint job on a tandem sounds pretty cool.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
