It seems that cycling can be a lot like other areas of our culture here in the U.S.A. THere seems to be a lot of discussion and fascination with the high dollar bikes and accessories. It goes without saying that there are different economic classes of cyclists, but it would be interesting to hear from the minimalists.
We all know that there are tons of doctors and lawyers with $5000 bikes sitting in their garage collecting dust, but what about the guy that is a SERIOUS rider and has the bare minimum? It would be interesting to hear stories of people who have ridden a lot on very little coin.
I'm not talking about the guy that is broke and rides his bike to pick up aluminum cans for a living. I am more interested in just hearing from average ordinary cyclists who participate in the sport with very little capital involved?
Are you a minimalist cyclist? If so, what qualifies you? Or are you like the rest of us who are getting paper cuts from savagely tearing through our Performance catalog looking for our next needless purchase?
