Hi all, I've come to the realization that I need to get back into riding again for health and sanity reasons. I used to ride several hundred miles a month in my teens/20s including probably 5-10 organized rides a season. Then I got married, started working more, had kids etc and the bike remained hanging in the garage or basement.
I have a Cilo, unsure of the year, but I bought it in '86 from a buddy in high school when he decided to switch to mountain biking. It's got a combination of some lower end Campy and early '90s vintage Ultegra components, with tubulars. I'll be doing a rebuild this winter while spending some quality time on the wind trainer in the basement.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Post a photo of your bike in the Classic & Vintage forum. They can help you identify the year of your bike.

Welcome. You could also buy a cheap bike for winter cycling. Nice to take a break from the boredom of the trainer.
