Hi all

I'm new to the site - I have just purchased an Ellis Briggs bike from a friend and it is a beautiful and somewhat garish example of retro steel bike - Flamboyant some may say!

I am definitely loving the retro yumminess! :D

Hi all,

I'm English but live in Montpellier in Southern France. I'm 38 now and getting back into cycling after many years of not finding the time/being a lazy git. Over on the MTB forum I mentioned that I still have my 1991 Orange Clockwork, as well as an Overburys Pioneer frame and fork that I'm going to build up. Not many of either of those in France! But I also have a 2000 Specialized Allez Sport that I'm going to sell (uncomfortable) and am replacing with a Vitus 979 I've just bought locally for 150 Euros..! Always fancied one of these. It's all over my workbench at the moment. I also splashed out 45 Euros on a 1976 Dawes Galaxy as I've always fancied one of those too! Struggling to find tyres for it over here but will keep looking. Lovely retro brown thing. I'll get some photos of my various projects up soon.

This is a great forum and really brings back memories...

Hello hello! I'm Ben and I live in Oxford, been getting steadily more and more into cycling since moving here in Jan. I ride every day to work and try to get out as much as possible after hours. Working in Oxford I've taken advantage of the cycle to work scheme and got myself a Via Nirone 7 which is great for the commuting and longer distances.

The reason I've come on here is I've also got a early nighties Cromor frame Bianchi which I love to ride whenever it is dry and I can! I am in the process of doing her up and hopefully getting her better than her former glory!

I was recommended this site by a friend and I must say great stuff! I've mainly been reading threads and getting used to the forum.

So hello, you shall hear more from me soon!

Hi all,

I got into cycling by accident last May and having bought a lovely bike last August, I have become totally addicted to it! I'll be sure to post all about it in the Readers Road Bikes section.
