To All: Hello From Indonesia

Greetings all,

My name is Armand and I am from Indonesia. I have been a bicyclist since they remove those two training wheels off the rear wheel and have been a mountain biker since approx 95. My screen name translated into "bicycle junkie" because Speda is short for Indonesian word "sepeda" which in English it translates into "Bicycle".

I am currently the owner or partial owner of three bicycle: 1993 Cannondale Delta V2000, one of the first modern full suspension bike; 1987 Raleigh Race Special 10spd Road bike; and my brother's 2006 Polygon (an Indonesian local brand) Anvil, also a full suspension bike.

I have been spying this forum for awhile but today I realize that I can contribute to this forum as well as I have been in other forums. I am also a member of Indonesian web forum called "sepedaku.com" (trans: "my bicycle") and Bike to work community (though I'm not commuting to work but will; "b2wIndonesia.com") under the same name.

I hope that help this forum with experiences of my own.

Warm Regards,

Armand

Thank you, sir.

It is not completely original though. The tape grip was worn off and no one could find the exact tape so they bought the next one over: BLACK! LOL

The tires weren't original either. The original tires worn off and thrown away long time ago. It was replaced with Cheng Sin 700C x 25 about 15 years ago and it is currently on a dry, well cracked of its former self.

I have been thinking to restore it by at least buying a pair of cheap tires just to get it rolling but now I am considering putting so modern equipments on it since the old components are old (right) and weak.

I'm planning to open a new threat at the Vintage & Classics forum to show the rest of the pictures later.
