Francophile

Hi, I'm Bob in Salt Lake City and I love all things French when it comes to bikes. I've restored my old Peugeot PX10 that I've owned and ridden since the early 70's and recently purchased a Peugeot PRN10E off Ebay (paid way too much) because I was seduced by it's like new condition; I mean really, it almost looks like it's off the show room floor, and it's RED and what little boy (of any age) isn't drawn to a shiny red bike (the one that should have been next to the Christmas tree). I'm a disciple of the late, great Sheldon Brown and I to believe that "the beautiful is as useful as the useful". Because I'm drawn to the restoration and upgrading of French bikes; I'm working on an old yellow Astra mixte (it has a "made in France" label on it) that belonged to my mother and is now ridden by my wife, complete with a Nantucket basket; I have the same problems as many of you, such as frozen fixed cup on the BB, the replacement of freewheels (what thread?) etc. Anyway, I'm happy to be part of your unique and knowledgable group. All bikes are beautiful. Your bike is beautiful. Ride on.
Best Regards,
Bob
