maybe then the american bicycle industry will stop obsessing about racing. We don't need 5000 models of racing bike. What we need are sensible bikes that real people can ride.
Such bikes used to be available. Then Greg won the Tour and suddenly all the bike companies focused on racing and forgot everything else. I rejoiced when Greg retired. I thought "Finally, the bike companies will pull their heads out of their arses and start building real bikes again." But before they had a chance to come to their senses, along came Lance and the obsession continued.
