My name is John Damiano from San Ramon, CA, USA. I just now joined, after hearing about this list over and over again in the Vintage and Classic forum at Bikeforums.net

Last fall, I had the privilege of riding with some of you through the Livermore wine country, and had a wonderful time. I look forward to future SF Bay Area rides, and am anxiously awaiting notification of any that are pending.

I'm a bikaholic - the current stable is chock-full and ever-changing. In the vintage category, I have:

1) Restored late 70's Mondia Super 2) 1985 Eddy Merckx Professional 3) mid 80's Nishiki International 4) 80's Palo Alto, although modified with a modern Campy 10 speed drivetrain

In addition, I have my 12 year old daughter riding a cute little 48cm Battaglin Giro.

My dream bike would be a 56cm Cinelli Super Corsa, in China Blue. I came >this close< to bagging the one Tom at GHV bikes had up for sale a while ago, but missed out. :(

I look forward to participating here - thanks for having me!
