Almost as good as "googling" the question.

Craiyon.com has an AI engine that generates images for prompts you enter. So I typed in "A vintage bicycle being restored". Here are some of the results:

I'm really enjoying the elegant sweep of the chainstays/seatstays/tentacled horror in that last picture.

If you want to ask it about spoke length have at it: https://openai.com/blog/chatgpt/

I find the "rewarding and deepy satisfying" repetition to be deeply creepy.

I just realized I might be a bot. I've been accused of telling the same stories over and over again.
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I've had a theory for a while now that the machines will probably take over well before we noticed that they had and that, in fact, this may have already happened. But it never even occurred to me to suspect that one of my good friends might be a bot. Fiendishly clever, those/you machines.
