Hi everyone,

Happy to be aboard what seems like a nice, friendly cycling community.

I'm the proud owner of a battered old single-speed bike I rescued from the garbage and rejuvenated with a service/some new parts. Wearing sticky Continental GPs, this faithful old bike is an absolute hoot around town.

Shopping duties and longer treks on bumpier terrain are handled by my trusty Ridgeback flight 01. For dry, sunny weather, I have a '90s steel race bike that hugely exceeds my own performance levels. Now if only I could track down the source of that worrying creak.... Sad

See y'all in the threads!

hi Chris and welcome!
I am a fan of 'rescued from the garbage' stories Smile do you have any before and after photos to share?

greetings from Vermont
