A quick introduction: I'm Tim McGovern, I ride a late but on-topic Trek and (more usually) a Surly built up a la 1980 cyclocross/commuter: friction-shifted (of course) from the bar-ends.
I've been a subscriber in the past but recently found myself browsing the archives more and more, so I thought I'd sign up once again. I love to admire the restorations and preservations (but my habits--not to mention living situation--fall very much into the "This is why we can't have nice things!" category).
I've conceived a powerful lust, however, for a vintage ALAN cyclocross frame, 54cm tall. I was second-highest bidder in an eBay auction on one last week and the desire is still burning strong. Drop me a line if you've got one more than you need!
With thanks, and happiness to be back on the list,
Chicago, Illinois, USA
