    Winter rides..??

    Vintage bike forum??

    I'm an old school rider that did more serious biking back in the late 90's/early 00's, and after about 20 years off for school, work, marraige, etc I'm getting back in to the swing of things. After looking at what's popular on the market today I must say I still prefer my Gary Fisher Paragon...
