Does any else still miss their stolen bike?
this is a wayback story. In 1967 I bought a Frejus (Italian frame), full campy, Columbus tubing, chromed frame. Loved that bike. In 1972 while staying at a friend's apartment for a week, I foolishly kept the bike in the trunk of my car because of limited apartment space. After a couple of days, the car was gone, the bike was gone. I ultimately recovered the car, but never recovered the bike. To this day I still think of it.
I've bought several bikes since then, most recently last year. Sure there are better bikes out there today (including my most recent acquisition) both in quality of components and framebuild, but that was one sweet looking and riding bike, I had lots of fine rides on it, and to this day I still miss it.
Any one else who hasn't quite let go of a bike that vanished overnight?
