Folder Comments Part xxx

I love when people share comments they get when out and about on their folders. Here's my most recent, humorous comment:

While riding on the Capital Crescent Trail, I passed a mom/dad/kid who were on their bikes. From behind I heard the kid exclaim: "Mom, Dad, it's one of those little bikes! Look, a little bike!"

That's funny, I got exactly the opposite reaction. Meeting my daughter at her elementary school a couple years ago a tiny little boy seeing my bike said to his mom "Look at that big bike!." I think it was my Moulton Stowaway; the 16" wheels make the rest of it look disproportionately large (to a child, anyway).

A couple months ago I rode up to the library to return a book, and some kids were hanging out near the bike rack, and I caught the tail end of one's remark to the others: " . . . or you'll turn out like that guy with the bike!" Kinda wish I'd heard the whole thing.

I heard a similar comment "But isn't this bicycle for children?! Aren't those wheels for children's bicycles?!"

Thse were comments from an adult.
