All,
Figured it was time for a proper intro. I've been getting back into cycling after an 8 year or so hiatus. I started off with a MTB, and Im trying to toss my first fixie for 'round the town together. Its an old schwinn traveler frame that I got for $5. As it sits now, its got a new paint job, and is awaiting wet-sanding and compounding. I'm prolly going to go with IRO hubs and open pros, although some of the velocity wheels look tempting.
I'll try to toss some photos up later.

Regards,
Steve

Welcome

It's hard to beat open pros and those IRO hubs are nice! Good luck on the paintjob. Stripping and paint prep is one of my least favorite activities. Don't forget the pics. :cool:

Welcome to RBR. At least you're starting out right and coming to the Lounge instead of starting out with all the weirdos in PO ;).
Cheers, Wayne

Great to have you. It is a nice crew here... everything from helpful substantive knowledge on all things cycling and fitness related to good friendly banter and lively political arguing. Welcome, welcome.

Hehe. Thanks !
I will say this....I see myself headed down a dark alley here. Everytime I sign onto RBR I laugh my ass off and have the strange desire to have a beer....hrmm...
I got some pics of the fixie today, but the scanner is being a tool. Hopefully my friend will be down with his digi tomorrow.

Thanks again.
