    When I lived in China I was a member of a pretty active club and I really liked it. Even then, most of my riding was by myself. However, here in the states I ride alone.

    I strongly agree that this is what is happening. "some words LEFT" is just a bad passing phrase, it should never have been adopted.

    Don't worry, you did the right thing. Suspension isn't necessary. The basic safety bike is over one hundred years old and for only a few of those years has suspension even been a consideration. You...
