I only ride my retro rigs. To me they have more character than any of today's modern machines and were built to last.

I believe in our 'disposable society' and excessive production of short-lived or disposable items these older steel machines are synonymous with sustainable living. I really like the concept of a bike for life.... (although TBH I have been toying with the idea of rebuilding an Alu/Carbon condor I used to ride ;)

A Pinarello Stelvio on old Campa 8v grouppo is my main ride and workhorse.

My MXL when I feel like a treat to myself.

All of my bikes are "retro" so that's what I always ride.

I ride all mine :)
If it's wet it's usually the Boardman and I keep my Claud Butler for the easy summer trails...
