Hey all. New to these forums. Thought I would introduce myself and share a couple of my bikes.

Mostly into vintage lightweights and touring bikes circa 1940-1980, but the sweet spot for me is early 80's italian and japanese.

I'm currently living in San Francisco, home of too many hipsters, but overall it's a nice place. If anyone ever decides to head this way, hit me up for suggestions or a ride.

50's F.H. Grubb Club Racer



Mix of early Campy Gran Sport and French comp, setup 1x5 with a campy bar end shifter. Stronglight cranks. CLB levers with Dural Forge Calipers. Wrights saddle.

1970's Starnord Built Paris Sport set up as a semi pourter


Tevano Pista cranks, maillard team issue track hubs laced to Super Champion competition tubulars. Ideale 90 saddle, campy pista HS, TA track pedals, Cinelli bar and stem combo, no name vintage front rack.

1960's Aussie Malvern Star Path Racer


Currently out of commision since it's too small. TA 3 pin track cranks, airlite hubs laced to mavic MA rims, brooks pro, JPR seatpost, Steel titan stem and no-name bars.

I'm one of four authors of and help run SFFixed. Feel free to drop by either and say hello.

Hello and welcome :D
Thats a really classy collection of machines you have there, all look really smart.
I especially like the Malvern star, as being an Aussie and the Malvern Star (but a bit later than this :wink: ) was my first bike when I was a kid and served me well through many incarnations over my childhood and teenage years.
Will definately check out the site.
Thanks for sharing and all the best
