Yesterday I was in a distant town, visiting someone in the hospital. When they brought her lunch (liquified fish
) I took a walk outside. There is a small Schwinn shop in the town, so I dropped in. As I stepped inside the door, I was greeted by the smell of a bike shop: axle grease, chain oil, metal, rubber, and some unindentifiable essence. I love that scent.

The bike was designed back in the bicycle boom of the 1890s. Unlike a lot of other experimental designs from that era, it is still around.
