I had a pleasant bicycle commute to work today on my 1973 Varsity. Not really fast, not really effortless, but silky and in control so I could enjoy the scenery in comfort.
One of my colleagues treated me to lunch today. We went to the restaurant in his big old Cadillac (He didn't have a bike). That Cadillac was one smooth ride. It sucked up the bumps like a feather bed.
I had to comment to my friend, "Man, this Cadillac rides like an old Schwinn!"
(ya, some of you guys may have my post on the oldroads-vintage lightweights forum, but I thought it would tickle some of the BikeForum.Com riders as well).
