Solo riding was lacking essential elements for me and as luck would have it I found AABTS. Club riding has made all the difference. Great people, helpful advice, an organized ride schedule, camaraderie and club activities.
I also enjoy being a do-it-yourself bike & wheel builder.

I have completely refurbished and restored it. Not a spec of rust. Fine rubbing compound has restored the paint very nicely. Eagle One Nevr Dull did a wonderful job on all things metal/alloy. This is my dedicated roller bike, possibly with an occasional sunny day, retro road ride. Pictures before and after restoration coming soon.
