Okay, another thread got me thinking: which vintage bike would you choose in the event of a Zombie attack? Obviously, you'd want a bike; a car would only attract mindless zombies, just like a shopping mall in Dawn of the Dead. Plus, you'd be silent. Even the Zombie Survival Guide admits this, and classifies the bike as the superior form of transport during a zombie apocalypse.
Now Big Boss Man has argued for an electroforged Schwinn, with durability as his main criteria.
Me, I think a vintage, no suspension MTB would be best, maybe re-rigged a bit with a different crank set up.
Obviously, new bikes will not work in the event of a Zombie apocalypse. I mean, you might be able to brain a few zombies with the shards of your CF bike after it spontaneously self destructs, but what then? No, you need something properly sturdy.
Please take this poll seriously, as it will help those in need make proper survival decisions in the future.
