Hello, ,My name is Tom Roberson, and I live in Reston, VA , , , I have had the good fortune to have met and ridden with some of the folks on this list and the ibob list. . . I am looking forward to seeing the incredibly interesting bikes that some of you have posted, and will be riding and showing. . . Undauntedly, I will bring my Mondia fixed road bike, as a 1970s reality check. I may also bring my chrome 1970 touring Paramount single speed in which I will ride into old age as fitted now with riv Falcon bars, and a wide Brooks saddle. A little bit of a bio: I came into the sport in the late ' 60s on a Gitane , , I also spent a lot of time on a Bustraan "RIH" out of the late Chris Meerman's shop in McLean, VA . . I raced in Masters class up to 1990.

After many years of frugality I finally begin to acquire more than just the "one" bike that I always made do with, and I have now ( not in any particular order):

1. The aforementioned Mondia Special 2. The afore " " " " " Schwinn Paramount 3: Marinoni, c early 1980,s 4 1150 model Waterford 5. Riv Atlantis , , 26" wheeled 6. Bridgestone XO-1

I look forward to seeing you at C d C in May

regards, , , Tom Roberson
