Ill be 24 in a few months.
For me c&v wasnt really a choice.
When i started college i needed transportation and i was just healing from a skateboarding accident so i was hesitant to skate to school.
My friends dad had a garage full of c&v bikes and thats just all i knew so it when it came time to buy a bike i just bought what i knew.

II found what i really like about c&v is working on bikes.
Taking them apart and back together keeps me busy and when i ride them i have a sense of pride.

Another thing i like is the looks of c&v bikes.
Lugs look so elegant to me. Even the simplest lugs.
I recently picked up an early stumpjumper sport and the lugs though nothing special look great and that fork is something else. I wish more road bikes had bi plane forks.

Modern bikes looks like robots. Im not against modern bikes but no modern bike has ever been attractive to me
