Am I retro?rightsaidfred

i Have this bike, and a bike built by a tucson frame builder named Andy Gilmour (built about the same time as the 83 trek 620). Anyway, these are the only bikes I own, and I just started riding. I ride them all over, I love cruising next to fancy shmancy bikes.

Well, that's my intro.

This is a Gilmour. The frame's got some nice aesthetic two tone fade paint [which has been pretty tough considering it gets banged up while locking it...(My Bianchi Pista had hundreds of paint chips)] and cutout and outlined lugs. The fork wasn't drilled for brakes, but $10 for carbide drill bits solved the problem pretty easilly.

I've since put a thompson laidback seatpost on it and that solved my fit problem 100%.

Shucks, we've let folks hang around here with 90's bikes.

As long as they're from the last millenium, I guess.
