I am an automotive journalist, usually, but have just written an article about the new Cadillac Bicycle line, and have previously written about the Mercedes bikes. Even though I write about cars for a living, I'm a long-time bike enthusiast, so these articles are more than just rewritten press releases.
Also, my apologies for posting here if this is the wrong space. My new membership would not allow me to post in the self-promotion forum.

Now tell us about YOUR bikes.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
Haha, fair enough -- right now I am the proud owner of a Raleigh beach cruiser -- no gears, no brakes just pedals and wheels. This choice sure surprised my wife, who offered to buy me a bike last year and she expected me to go for a $600 Trek or Specialized M-bike. The Raleigh cost $219, and it's giving me more pleasure than the $1,900 Klein roadie I've owned, the $900 Trek or any number of M-bikes.
Matter of fact, the Raleigh looks a lot like my first two-wheeler. Without the "gas tank," or streamers on the handlebars.
