Welcome to Bike Forums, Keith. Feel free to ask any questions in the Bicycle Mechanics forums.

What kind of bikes do you have?

I have an old fuji sunfire.. started out on this one for riding around town and trails.. I definitely am going to upgrade to a specialized rockhopper when I get the dough...

My other bike (and my latest obsession) is an old raleigh super record. I picked it up at a swap meet about a week ago, and have been working on getting it up and running. So far the only problem has been the wheels. It had old 27 inch rigida wheels, and I broke a spoke on it this weekend. I took it into the bike shop and they didnt have the freewheel tool to remove it. I decided to avoid the hassle and bought some weinmann 700c's. I'm still deciding on what tire to put on it.. Any suggestions would be great.

I enjoy both types of riding, and have found that I'll definitely need 2 bikes to support my road travels as well as my need to get dirty on the trails.

I hope that answered some questions, glad to have found this forum!

If you haven't already found the "Classic and Vintage" forum you'll find a lot of support and ideas about what you need to get this bike into great shape. I've picked up this obsession myself and after nearly a year it's still going strong.
