I say hello

I am from the Twin Cities in Minnesnowta.
Currently riding a 20 year oldish road bike, newish touring rig and a few vintage 3 speeds bikes.
I've been riding a long time.
I've literally worked on thousands of bikes.
I'm employed as a bike technician.

Vintage 3 speeds, huh? One of the largest threads on this entire forum is a 3 speed thread in the classic and vintage sub forum. You definitely need to check it out.
Have you ever done the Lake Pepin 3 speed tour?

Dan,
I have done it ( Lake Pepin 3 speed ), last year in fact. Due to it typically falling on Mothers day weekend it is not something I get to regularly. I also did the All British Cycling Event on that very hot Sept. day last year.. I'm working to get to both again this year. I'm planning out repairing an oldish very unique bike this year.. It's in rough shape and I'll likely just clean it up and keep the patina during the overhaul.
