Long time bike rider. Rode about 1800 miles this year, mostly on a 1998 Stumpjumper Comp.

I really like working on bikes more than riding them though. Current interest is on a just located 1987 Centurion Elite RS, with Wolber Super Champion Alpine rims (700cm), Shimano 600 front and rear derailuers, Nitto head stem and bar, Biopace crank, and Dia-Compe side pull brakes, Panaracer 100 lb white wall tires. The bike is all stock, what a great ride. I'll say better than my 1993 Trek 2200 Carbon Road bike.

Anyway, collection includes-

1967 Schwinn Sting Ray Fastback 5 Speed - 20 inch - oringinal
1974 Schwinn Suburban mens 5 speed- 26 inch - original
1987 Centurion Elite RS Chrome Moly road bike
1993 Trek 2200 Carbon Fiber road bike
1994 Canondale M1000 Mountain Bike with optional front shock
1998 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp

Welcome to the Forums. Sounds like you have fully grasped the spirit of N+1!

("N+1" is the often posted and correct answer to the question "How many bikes is enough?", with N being the number of bikes you currently have.)

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
