Hi all,

The names Dan (hence the name) I'm sixteen and own 3 retro road bikes, a Raleigh Equip (that i belive is a 1989 model) that I've almost finished restoring, (I'll post some pictures soon) a Falcon Sirocco that's currently just a rough frame, thats the next project, and the last bikes a G.H Stevens (never heard of it before or since) that I've converted to single speed.

I look foward to posting some more, and getting some new idea's

Dan

Hi, Nick from London. I've got an old Dave Quinn 531 in lovely blue (unfortunately got a dent in the top tube) and a Cannondale R500 frame in bare polished aluminium. I've wanted to build them up for ages.....think it's time.

Hello bike fans.

I'm the ony person in the family that is athletic and all my friends are beer gussling fatties and i'm sad to say that i have absolutley no one in my life that appreciates my Colnago Master Olympic. :( So, i thought i would reach out in to that mystical world that is cyber world and become a member of this here forum and form loving meaningful relationships with you all! :D

If you are a Colnago Master Olympic fan or a Colnago fan in general then please get in touch, would like to hear from you and if you would like to pass comment on my Colnago then please do, nothing bad must be said though! but i don't mind constructive advice! LOL :D :shock: :) :? 8) :P :roll: :twisted:

New member, joined today but have been a lurker for a while.

I currently have;

2001 Cannondale CAAD4 in viper red with full dura-ace 9 spd, kysrium SSL wheels.

1998 Bianchi Team TimeTrial (Mercatone Uno) with Cinelli Angels, 9sp dura-ace inc' 55 tooth dinner plate with specialized trispokes and Corima disc.

2001 Giant ATX Team, Rock Shox SIDs, XT groupset, X-Link wheels and easton carbon finishing kit.

2005 Fondriest Mega-Plus, Ultegra 9spd and Kysirium equipe wheels. Frame to soon be replaced with a Ribble steel.

But hardly ever ride at the moment due to seemingly spending every waking hour at work. Seriously need to readjust work-life balance as its slowly destroying me.
