Greetings from SoEast Mass

I'm John, 50 and live very close to the ocean near the MA/RI border. I have a vintage early 80's Fuji Touring Series IV, that I took across country in 84, New Zealand in 90. Also have a ~1990 Univega Alpina Pro (or team?) MTN Bike - that's pre-suspension. I inherited a REI Novara road bike and I have an early 70's Raleigh Competition - chrome forks - rear stays, and lugs. It's in pieces and I am thinking of making it into a single speed.

Also have a Pro-Flex Mtn Bike frame that needs building up. By BikeSnob's definition, I would be a Retro-Grouch. Only the road bike has index shifting and the Fuji has bar-ends.

Have not toured in years, but late spring I am riding with a friend and son on a 4-day in So. Vermont. Have the lean-to's booked already!

Hoping to get back into biking much more this year and do a couple of tours.

Happy trails,
