Greetings from New Jersey

New to the forums. Lots of interesting stuff and hours of entertainment.
Riding for fun for many years. Commuting for 2 years into city of Newark.
It's a short commute, but to make it interesting I ride a 25 year old Univega Viva Touring bike converted to a fixed gear. Just swapped my 25 year old Blackburn rack for an IRD. Love it all. I look a lot at new frames (Surly etc) - but when I really think about it, the frame I have does all I need it to do. Couldn't really ask for more at this point. Maybe look seriously some time down the road when I try out some fixed gear touring - but maybe not.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Check out the Northeast regional forum for other riders in your area, and post a photo of your Univega in the Classic & Vintage forum. They'd love it.
