Just wanted to introduce myself, I’m Fabio, Italian in London and proud owner of three 1970s road bikes (one Pinarello and two Olympias).

Hi everyone,
I'm Diego from Ecuador. I own a 1981 BSA roadster and I’ve been lurking for a while here but I haven't posted anything yet.
I need to ask some questions so I’d better introduce myself.

Hi, I'm Trevor from India, who lives in Dallas. I like your community. Recently my bike was stolen and I'm looking for a replacement for it.

I kind of already did this in the retrogrouch thread, but...

Tommy, South Coast UK.

Currently riding a recent Trek mostly, but setting up a steel De Ver Track frame for road use. Also looking to get a recentish steel tourer/ audux frame and put as much of the 105 group set on the Trek as I can onto that for club runs, Audax, fast touring, rough stuff/ gravel and so on.

Previous owned a 60s Carlton Track Frame when I was a Bike Messenger.

I'm Bob from Bristol. I have posted here a few times but the system has cut me off from private messaging as I have not posted often enough! So here's a catch-up which I should have done two years ago.

I returned to cycling after a long long long layoff and bought a hybrid to get me started. Whilst it is OK for the winter in the country I longed for that 1970s / 1980s steel frame feel, so I bought a '79 Falcon on eBay and have not stopped since. The lockdown gave me the time to ride miles and miles into North Somerset and in the last two years have started amassing a small collection of quality Falcons from their heyday - all l'eroica compliant.

I am happy to correspond with anyone interested in the marque. I am compiling a collection of catalogues and a spreadsheet of models between 1956 and 1987 - when they were in catalogues and how Falcon had a very casual approach to model names and model numbers. I have made quite a bit of headway with this.

So that's it. I have learned so much recently. If only we had had the internet back in the day!

Cheers all.

Hello everyone. I am not new to vintage bicycles, but I am new to your website, and excited to join. I am also very active in BikeForums / Classic & Vintage.

I am based in the city of Encinitas, on the north coast of San Diego County. After working 35 years in the semiconductor industry, I am enjoying an encore career teaching electrical engineering and computer science at a local university. Bicycling is the only sport I have deeply, truly loved, probably because it involves practical, efficient, clean transportation, aerobic exercise, camaraderie (online and in person), freedom, fun, and machinery to collect, repair, and/or modify.

I have one mountain bike, a 1988 Schwinn Project KOM-10, plus several road bikes, some of which are in full working order and get ridden, and others of which seem to be perennial lack-of-time projects. Rounding out the stable are three circa 1960 Capo bicycles from Vienna, Austria (including two littermate top-of-the-line Siegers), a 1982 Bianchi Campione d'Italia, and my 1970 Peugeot UO-8 "beater," and I am tempted to buy an early 1960s Carlton Franco Suisse from my wife's younger sister. I am particularly interested in learning more about the Carlton, which would be my first English bicycle since my Hercules and Armstrong converted 3-speeds of my undergrad days at UCLA.
