.....I joined Retrobike looking for stuff for my Cannondale. 7 years later and I've still not built it :oops: a quick count reveals that 32 other retro frames/bikes have passed through my hands since then though :D

And 13 days later I arrived in the seen, I think it's time for more celebratory purchases for us both :D

Happy anniversary

You really got me thinking...how long ago did the Timber Comp fall in my lap? It took an hour of searching, but I finally found the picture when I first laid eyes on it (and had no clue what it would lead to...). I bet I hit this website as a lurker a few months after.

April 16, 2006:

I forgot how beat the bike was, I guess I restored it before I even knew what that was. I really, really wish I still had that front pannier. I remember tossing the original tires in the trash, and it gave me a bad, funny feeling....I went back out an hour later and grabbed them, still have them. Tossed the seat though....it was beyond gone.

How it looks now, plus a companion:

By the time we get to 2012 it looks like I have a freaking bike shop:

Still hooked!
