New: Take part in the November Giveaway for the TurboAnt Thunder T1 Fat Tire E-bike


Intro
#1
Hello, all. Joined this forum a couple weeks ago and have posted a few times since, but never introduced myself. Worked in a bike shop from 1981 to just last month. Had a good long run not making much money, and living frugally. Finally I have retired from bikes and now work with cars. Will do this for a few years and then retire from working at all!
Vintage bikes are my favorites, and is what I currently ride. I have also build a few frames of my own design and ride them as well. At one time I knew all sorts of component and tubing spec and was referred to by co-workers as "The Encyclopedia", but it has been unused for too many years and is now lost to time. No longer race, but I do short tours and day rides. Long tours will happen when I stop working.
Hope this forum grows and gains many cyclists that are more about riding than components, as my interests are in sharing rides and experiences more than talking about the latest and greatest stuff.
Enough about me, how 'bout you?

Great to have you on the forum, Jeff!
I'm just a regular bike guy who enjoys MTB and road cycling, also watches pro road cycling on the TV, and used to write about it in the local media (attended a couple of UCI World championships). I'll definitely have questions to ask once I begin working on my first vintage bike project.

What rides do you have?
Merida Scultura 5000 (2015)
Merida Big Nine 400 (2019)
