He’s really jealous....”, But of course his wife is having none of it. THE ORIGINS OF N+1.

Here is the video again, but I translated the text from the original Dutch to English.

I’m surprised he was able to finish after he landed on his face...

Excellent thanks.
That was some fall he took.
I doubt he rode that bike again.

Thank you for this.

Hard to see the struggle it took to get us to where we are, but grateful.

Great stuff. Looks like a lot of the bikes are for someone with longer legs than he has. He can't reach the pedals on some. Maybe adjustable seatposts hadn't been invented.
