Boise Newbie to this site...

Hello all,

I've joined this forum to learn more about my latest newfound addiction, vintage commuter bikes. I've just pulled an old Raleigh from my father in laws garage, and already have 10 days commuting on her. Pumped up the tires, adjusted the saddle and brakes, lubed the chain, and bingo.

I've added aluminum wheels and a MagicShine lighting system for commuting. I love the ride of this big heavy old girl, and will be adding a Donkey Boxx soon.

I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
