Back on a road bike...

Hi, my name is Michael and I'm in the San francisco Bay area. I recently pulled an early 80's road bike out of the trash (Univega Nuovo sport, big frame on it) added a saddle and put air in the tires and rediscovered the joys of skinny tires and light frames after 20 years on a mountain bike (stolen last summer)

way too much info to ingest in one sitting on this forum, but lots and lots of great stuff to (re) learn about cycling.
