My name is Lucas and I am a bike addict :D
I have a small shop here in Portland called Veloseum that I have operated for many years now
I have amassed a rather large collection over the years, some for sale and some to be buried with me :roll:
My interests range from classic MTBs, vintage road bikes, vintage track bikes, etcetera
I specialize in vintage/rare/unique frames, components, spare parts, & tools
If there's anything you're looking for, please don't hesitate to ask! :xmas-big-grin:

Here's a shot of one of my work bench tool boards:

Bought a lava dome frame 1995 in poor condition. Had started out wanting to build an original bike with retro parts.
But failed to find any parts I required so decided to bring the old frame into the future and added parts I accumulated with some new bits here and there.

Hi All

I've recently got back into cycling and have a modern DBR Hardtail MTB for bombing around on. Previous 2-wheel fun has mainly been powered!

I also have a 1994 Diamondback Axis TR (steel, not titanium) which I am looking to restore.

Hi folks,

Just joined the forum based on the fact most of my bikes appear to be retro bikes. How did that happen?

I had always promised myself a full suspension mountain bike and last year I finally bought one but whilst reading reviews and generally being quite shocked at the changes that had happened in bike design since my last purchase I started to do some investigating and that is how I found this site.

So to fill you in the last bike I bought was in 1993! A Kona Lava Dome and I still own it. A fabulous light weight steel framed none suspension mountain bike but you probably know that already. In the time I have owned it I have ridden Lands End to John O'Groats and coast to coast on this bike all-beit with road based tyres. It had a short time mud plugging when new but not a lot since and when I recently tried again it became clear it was a bit behind the times on down hill sections hence the new bike.

So that's my introduction, I had better hop across to the BMX section now to introduce myself and my even older original 1983 Ultra Burner that I got for my 11th Birthday.
