This morning I saw two people on real euro style bikes, heavy racks, chaincase, integrated electronics full fenders. I've been seeing different ones almost every day this spring. I used to only see someone else on a bike like that maybe once per month. Some of them look well used but some look brand new too. If many more people start getting around on practical bikes I'll no longer be a dork, I'll be like hip or something. Is it just a DC thing? It has become too common to be just people from the international community.
