OK--the threads re: why this that or the other bike
or bikes are the ones you want are really fun. I'm
still waiting for that Somec. God, are you listening?
Somec, here stat.
Seriously. Lusting after bikes is a perennial pastime but
I think we all need to take a moment of silence and appreciate
the bikes we have. Not a "post your bikes" bike porn thing--
but rather than indulging in desire, something I do quite a bit,
indulge in gratitude. Every bike can be a gift to you, from
I love my bikes. They are made in Taiwan and Japan. There are
others like them but these are mine. Their lugs and welds are
at thing of beauty. I vow to apply framesaver or LPS to keep
the rust away, amen.
