Hi,
Recently joined, having rediscovered my teenage passion for renovating old bikes. Got back in to cycling about 10 years ago after a 17 year break and have been off and on since, dependent on time available.
Live in North Wirral, where I ride my roadbikes and very occassionaly take my mountain bike further afield.
I like my 531 Raleighs best, as I had one as a kid. Took my refurbished Competition out recently for it's first run and realised I'd forgotten how good the bike was and how bad my legs are.

Hi, been lurking awhile and finally took the plunge. I got back onto self-powered wheels last summer, bought an old Kona as part of a long-overdue fitness drive and had some fun. Now I reckon that I'm going to be more on-road than off it, so I'm scouring the classifieds for something retro and interesting. However, I know nothing about bikes !

Hi Steven, You can see the copper plated bike at viewtopic.php?f=23&t=243044
It's bit quirky, so not to everyone's taste, but It's a lot of fun to ride and draws a lot of attention.

Hi, my name is Alex, I'm from Portugal.

I have two vintage steel bikes, an early 80's portuguese "rodaplana" wich I'm equiping (slowly) with Nuovo record componentes, and a late 80's, early 90's CBT italia, mostly equiped with Shimano 600 tricolor.

I love vintage steel road bikes so I signed in! :D

cheers

Hi Everyone,

I didn't know I even liked steel until I started refurbing an old Raleigh road bike. Until this point I've only ever had chunky mountain bike frames including a beautiful 1998 Marin Mount Vision. But having worked really hard to re-vamp myself a road bike I just love the skinny steel tubes, they look so, I dunno, simple and 'classic' compared to modern aluminium and carbon road bike frames.

The bike I've refurbed wasn't even a great bike in it's day, but I think it probably looks better now than it ever did!

Retrobike has been a great place for advice and encouragement for me. Glad I found it.
