I'm really into the basic physical science of the bicycle like this: wheel, axle (spindle), lever (leverage), screw (threads), etc. One simple wonder that I don't take for granted is the ability for two nuts to lock together on a threaded bolt. At its most basic level, that's how a bicycle works. And I guess this is why I love rebuilding vintage bikes: I know how everything works. It's all so simple. The most basic things can be the most practical and beautiful. Fortunately, they can also be fast and fun.
