The bikes look the same, but the camping practices, if not philosophy, have changed. The toe clip looks worth some investigation, where did I put that lattigo leather...

You have to remember that the editors and publishers of Bicycling Magazine don't have long enough attention spans to be able to read more than one paragraph.
