Back after long hiatus

Hey all,

I cycled quite a bit in college (early 80s) but did other things for nearly 30 years as life unfolded. I managed to keep the old bikes. Our sons are old enough to be a little self-sufficient and running doesn't cut it with my very bad back (surgeries, therapy, yada yada). Had a message from God to get the old Raleigh Comp GS running, it needed a chain and derailleur, then my old Trek 614. Then a craigslist Colnago, and a clearance Paramount for my wife, now a Cannondale 2.8 for young son. Soon another vintage Trek from an old buddy...somebody stop me please.

Sure does feel good to ride again. A lot slower, but somehow more pleasant.
Any problem can be solved with the proper application of force, heat, chemicals, or money.
