Hello from Western Canada!

Hi,
I'm from Canada more precisely in Alberta. I'm a bike nuts. A friend of mine introduced me to this forum and I decided to make the jump when he showed me the garbage find area. I thought it was for me as I get 90% of my bikes from there. Junk for some, treasures for me! I'm a bike collector and I like repairing and riding my old crusty ones. I always love cycling but my 1994 CCM Black Ice really got me into it. It weighs about 40 pounds or more and I did a cyclothon (300km) on it believe it or not. I still have the guy and still ride it. I couldn't dump my first true love. Now I have a 2004 Eclipse hybrid, a older 1991 Mielle Alba LX road, a 1978 Peugeot 10 speeds, a 1940 Humber, a 1939 Zenith, 1949 CCM ballooner, 1968 Deelight Apollo, 1968 Leader Voyageur (foldable), 1981 Raleigh Stowaway (foldable) and the list goes on. It's fun I can ride what I wand when I want.
I'm also building a bike based on a GT Outpost ATB from 1990's and many other projects. The Leader mentioned above will be the candidate for a new look too. Suspension and disk break are in order. I can't wait to have my Norco tandem on the road. So much to do!!! Like you can notice, I love all bikes and ride them all. A bike is a bike and all are beautiful to me.
I could go on all day about my bikes but there's not enough room to tell about the 100+ of them. I wouldn't want to loose your attention!
I look forward to get to know you guys better!

WOW. Toute une collection!.
I now have three bikes - four if I count the wife's. And with a 2 year-old that will probably get her first next year it is gonna be time for me to start finding out how these things work if I don',t want to blow the family leisure budget on LBS for minor repair and adjustments.

Thanks Marin58, bikes are like chips for me. I can't have just one to the despair of my partner. But whenever company shows up and they would like to explore town by bike, I always have enough to accommodate everyone! Kids bikes are really easy to handle for repairs and adjustment are minor. The seat is what you need to move the most at that age. You will get around quick I'm sure.
Trinogt, I'm in the Calgary area.
