I'm new to this forum and this is my first post.
I've been a follower of Rivendell and Grant Peterson since the mid-90s.
Always wanted one of their bikes, but hasn't been in the budget.
Found this forum and enjoy it very much - very informative and have gained 
a lot of knowledge. Thank you to everyone who contributes.
Responded to a FS ad for a Sam Hillborne in this forum and now am an 
excited Riv bike owner. 
I support the FS posts and will attempt to participate more.
