Yep, I am 44 years old and that was my mid life thing and I am not going back! I live and work in down town Detroit and just do not need one, not at all! I started riding again 8 years back and one day I went to go and use my car and realized it had been sitting for 3 months and the bat was dead and it had 2 flat tires! The car was 2 years old and looked like crap! So now that I think of it, I went from an LHS to the Surly LHT in the photo, he he. O yea, in a sick way I sort of love the winter on a bike. every one thinks I am insane or just crazy, ha!
