I have a thread in classic&vintage How to properly say Nishiki? about my run in with a Nishiki rider. I posted my second version here, because its pretty off topic. What is a good way to approach a fellow cyclist? I was thinking to just say Nice Nishiki to see if he says anything back, or just speeds off. He had the "roadie" face on, but I probialy did too . His "wife" or somebody was jogging beside him, so no friendly race ,and man was she hard to pass. Any suggestions of what to say. And remember, I am 14, and he looked 40ish. This thread should be called "How to make friends"
